Firefox on a USB drive


I’m a little late to the party with this one, but Firefox (which is the only way to browse the Interweb on a Windows box, IMHO) is now functional while running off of a USB thumbdrive. It’s tiny, too; I have a little 32 meg drive that I keep all my stories on, and Firefox only takes up a fourth of the drive’s space. Now I can just pop my drive into a USB port on any Windows machine and all my favorite sites and settings are right there in front of me, and I can use tabbed browsing instead of IE’s terrible multiple windows. Ah, it’s bliss. 🙂
