Chromium Portable, lightweight (cognitively and physically) and fast browser!
"Chrome is viewed by many to have a reputation for security, but a lot of security experts actually take the view that Chromium is superior in this respect... 'Chrome's code has to be able to tie into Flash Player, for instance,'... 'So more code is involved to integrate with other third-party products. This all introduces more complexities and more code paths.'" —Jack M. Germain, LinuxInsider.com (Nov 26, 2013 5:00 AM PT)
Chromium is the open-source web browser project from which Google Chrome draws its source code. The browsers share the majority of code and features, though there are some minor differences in features and they have different licensing.
   "What’s the Difference Between Chromium and Chrome?" by Chris Hoffman, HowtoGeek.com, Published 11/25/14.

Yandex Browser Portable, secure and anonymous browser!
"Yandex is a handsome and fast browser. But it is too much like Chrome for my comfort. Moreover, it localizes most of its functionality, taking away some of its international charm. Stands to reason, when you think about it, as you end up with Yandex + Yandex versus Google + Google Chrome using pretty much the same technology, and this is what the Russian market needs. However, for anyone outside Russia, the combination of language searches, translations and suggestions might be too much." —dedoimedo.com (April 27, 2013)
"But all in all, the browser seems to be good to go as an option for daily internet activities. Its additional features include mouse gestures, notifications from Facebook and Twitter, document/e-book viewer, safe browsing, and webpage translator, which puts it on par with today’s alternatives." —Andrii Degeler theNextWeb.com (27 Nov '14, 06:55pm)
"Design wise, Yandex’s concept browser borrows heavily from Microsoft’s Windows 8 redesign, from two years ago." —Natasha Lomas (@riptari), techcrunch.com (Nov 28, 2014)
Yandex Browser, stylized as Yandex.Browser, (Russian: Яндекс.Браузер) is a freeware web browser developed by the Russian web search corporation Yandex that uses the Blink layout engine and is based on the Chromium open source project.

Citrio Portable, a fast and free web browser with intelligent download manager!
"...in addition to being totally compatible with Chrome and allowing you to automatically import your preferences and plugins, it includes lots of super-useful default features such as a download manager and integrated torrent client..." —Raúl Rosso, uptodown.com (October 20, 2015)
"Citrio allows you to enable proxy servers, for Internet connection, straight from its interface. The browser remembers your settings, which means you only have to set up the proxy server once." —Elizabeta Virlan, Softpedia.com
"If you haven't yet settled on a favorite browser, or you download a lot of media files from the Internet, you should definitely give Citrio a try. It offers one of the easiest ways we've seen to download files and, aside from the Ask "optimization," there was a lot to like in this free browser." —Download.com staff (February 04, 2015)
Citrio has all the basic functionality of Chrome plus a range of its own unique features. Citrio has an inbuilt download manager and a download accelerator, which allows to download files of any size even with the slow or tethering Internet connection.
   Citrio comes with a video grabber with which you can download your favorite videos from all most popular online video websites.
   If you want to browse anonymously, Citrio has an inbuilt solution for that as well. You can enter and save the desired proxy server credentials and use the settings for further browsing.

Universal Extractor Portable, decompress and extract files from any type of archive or installer!
"With support for almost any archive file out there, this app makes all others redundant—but its lack of support and inability to make archives hold it back." —Mark O'Neill, PCWorld.com (Aug 5, 2013 10:00 AM)
"...this program supports using a password list for secured archives. This function might come in handy if you need to decompress a large number of compressed items that are locked with different passwords." —Vlad Constantinescu, Softpedia.com (Jul 11, 2016)
"...you may run the program in batch mode. This enables you to use it to extract multiple archives or installer files in one go. ... Its author added support for "dozens of extractors" that expand the range of supported file types, and added an option to extract multimedia files directly as well to gain access to audio or video tracks directly." —Martin Brinkmann, ghacks.net (February 6, 2016)
Universal Extractor 2 is an unofficial updated and extended version of the original UniExtract by Jared Breland. It brings several hundred changes including community-wanted ones such as a batch mode, auto-updater and scan-only-functionality.

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.

Additional notes:
  • Firefox will be *plugin-less* in the near future—and that means Flash player will also be replaced with Web standard—read more about it here: "NPAPI Plugins in Firefox."
  •  Since version 46: 
    • 32-bit version can detect Flash player but won't play it. Java and Silverlight still work.
    • 64-bit version can't detect Java, but can play Flash and Silverlight.
    • Hmm... Why do Mozilla do this...?
  • Use Waterfox if you want all NPAPI plugins to work.

Ryver Portable, the free team communication tool!
"For now, Ryver lays out team communication in a way that's markedly more orderly than the way Editors' Choice Slack does, and that alone could benefit some teams. But it doesn't compare with Slack in terms of custom keyword notifications. It also isn't the all-in-one communication tool that co-winner HipChat Standard is, thanks to its included voice calls, video calls, and screen sharing." —Jill Duffy, PCMag.com (May 4, 2016)
"...one of the main reasons we switched. You can bring a client in without fear they’ll see something you don’t want them to. Or just bother them with stuff they don’t need. It’s just a lot cleaner." —Luria Petrucci, DigitalTrends.com (April 16, 2016 5:00 PM)
"While the company plans to convert Slack users, they are also targeting small businesses that use email as their primary chat method because they don’t have the budget to pay for Team Communication." —Tishin Donkersley, AZTechBeat.com (September 8, 2015)
Say goodbye to relying on email & meetings. Ryver streams together all your messages, notes, and discussions to improve productivity and deepen relationships.

KMPlayer Portable, we play all!
While KMPlayer is the perfect video playing toy for advanced users, those less experienced and keen to explore everything will most likely have a hard time getting to know it. Nevertheless, ... new features in the next major release, such as Cloud technology for synchronizing media library files across multiple locations. —Softpedia.com
The KMP tried to connect, repeatedly, to at least two groups of IP addresses:
1. log.kmplayer.com [IP: 61.118.8.189]
2. feeds.feedburner.com [92.87.232.114; 92.87.232.119; 92.87.232.123; 92.87.232.93]
   "Somebody" (from South Korea?) wishes to know what files are you playing, how often, from what location, if the files are "protected", and so on. Only "for statistical purposes", of course. So we don't have to become paranoid...
   Nevertheless, this "violation of privacy" is not similar to a neutral/legitimate "check for updates" action. —Wolfram (a user), Softpedia.com (4 Dec 2013)
Annoying ad screen to right of main viewing area cannot be dispensed with on start up and one has to manually dismiss by toggle switch on top bar. —Hugh (a user), Codecs.com (08 November 2014)

Sublime Text Portable, the text editor you'll fall in love with!
"Sublime Text has a minimap on the side that provides a top-down view of the file and keyboard shortcuts for most actions. It's also supports a large number of languages and general text editing features out of the box." —slant.co (May 25, 2016)
"One of my colleague recommend sublime to me about 6 months back and I can't imagine working without it now. It's the best. From a simple text editor to an IDE for any kids of code that you are writing ( C++, Java, Apex) it handles it all. It is very lightweight and I have never seen it crash till now. The default color coding of the text is very good..." —Rinku D., G2Crowd.com (October 08, 2015)
"Regardless of what you choose I decided to go back to Sublime. I urge everyone to find the editor you like the most and stick with it. It’s nice that Atom is Open Source and I’m sure it will become even more amazing as time passes; I don’t see it fading away any time soon. I will however keep a close eye on Atom, but I’ve decided to stick it out with Sublime. So in the end when it came down to Atom or Sublime…well…Sublime FTW!" —Dennis Gaebel, WDW/web-design-weekly.com (JULY 30, 2015)
Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code, markup and prose. You'll love the slick user interface, extraordinary features and amazing performance.
