We're close, for now...we hope ;)
We decide to stop our work on thumbapps.org...
   As you've all been reading on the side bar these past 6 months, this enterprise can't really pay for itself—let alone for us (me the poor developer and my beloved folks).
   We need time to regroup to think out ways to resume thumbapps.org or do something else that might be more profitable. (Let's hope that silly double negative in the title will do wonders and actually make this closing just another April fool :)
   Ok, now...
   We will release our last custom PortableApps.com Development Suite in the coming days or weeks to let you do your own DIY upgrade.
   We might update some of our release in the future—cause we need/use it anyway—but it won't closely follow the official software update release. (But don't hold your breath... :)
   As the Messenger [sas] said centuries ago, "If you slaughter, make it sharp and quick," and so... that's it![]

PS. I you want to comment you can do it on one of our social media...

Google Chrome Portable, browse with speed, simplicity and style
It won't crash... It's really fast. —J. R. Raphael, PCWorld.com, Sep 2, 2008.
Chrome is not just the cure for slow browsing. It has a number of other key features to recommend it, including excellent HTML standards compliance, its own copy of Flash, its own PDF viewer, automatic updating, synchronization across computers, incognito viewing, and many extensions. —Martin Heller, InfoWorld.com, Feb 19, 2014.
Google Chrome is a fast, simple, and secure web browser, built for the modern web.

Firefox Portable, when it’s personal, choose Firefox!
"The feel is slightly slower than Chrome or Opera, but not enough that it should irritate you. It uses fewer resources than Chrome or Opera, spawning only a single process, and using only 510MB of memory. Only the super-thrifty Safari used less memory." —Jon L. Jacobi, PCWorld.com (Sep 17, 2014 3:32 AM)
"Firefox has upped its game, with a great new look, fast performance, ingenious navigation features, and innovative Web technologies." —Michael Muchmore, PCMag.com
"Don't understand why it crashes so often." —funshinebear12 (a user),
download.CNET.com (April 26, 2015)
Mozilla Firefox is a fast, full-featured Web browser. Firefox includes pop-up blocking, tab-browsing, integrated Google search, simplified privacy controls, a streamlined browser window that shows you more of the page than any other browser and a number of additional features that work with you to help you get the most out of your time online.

Komodo Edit Portable, a powerful editor without all the advanced functionality an IDE comes with!
"Komodo Edit continues to be my favorite editor for writing HTML and XML. In fact, I use it for nearly every site I build. It is offered with a GPL license which means that there are lots and lots of add-ons and extesions for it as the community builds tools to help make it even better." —Jennifer Kyrnin, webdesign.About.com (November 25, 2014)
"...if you're not sure whether you need an IDE or just a powerful editor, you can start out with free Komodo Edit and maybe graduate up to IDE if you find you need advanced features such as debugging or source code control integration." —Erez Zukerman, PC World/PCAdvisor.co.uk (08 Feb 12)
"I like how easy the interface is to load, how well it connects to my hosted servers, and the how quickly the product loads and works. I have used a plethora of text editors in the passed 7 years and Komodo Edit has stayed my editor of choice for 2 years now. It just works great without adding confusing extras." —Bryce M. (a user), G2Crowd.com (April 11, 2016)
