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...

Kodi/XBMC Portable, Open Source Home Theater Software!
"If you're looking to use a box for streaming content to your television, then Kodi (or XBMC as it was previously known) is one of the best pieces of software out there to use." —Jon Porter, techradar.com (Jan 16, 2017)
"In fact, many of the most popular Kodi add-ons — like Exodus, 1Channel, Sports Devil, and others that let you watch paid TV without paying — are of highly questionable legality. So much so that, if you use these add-ons without also using a VPN with Kodi to stream safely and privately, you’re taking a big risk. " —
Lyn Atwood, wTVPC.com (September 9, 2016)
"Kodi Is the Best Multimedia Player out there" —TheMatthew562 (a user), Download.com (September 23, 2016)
Kodi (formally known as XBMC) is an award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub.

Atom Portable, a hackable text editor for the 21st Century!
"I came to Atom with a prejudice… the reported slowness and memory hungriness, made me to hesitate to try it… ... That’s the problem with information found on Internet: it quickly becomes stale… ... The minor issues mentioned above doesn’t prevent from using it: the good parts currently balance the bad ones. I will still recommend it. :-)" —Philippe Lhoste, philhosoft.github.io (2015-12-15)
"...overall editor performance has improved drastically over the past year, but it still lags behind other editors." —Clifford Fajardo, cliffordfajardo.com (January 24, 2016)
"Bad jokes aside, I was immediately struck by its insane slowness. For a text editor, it really takes a long time to launch! ... Aside from its slowness, and the fact that it eats RAM like an IDE, Atom is really a nice text editor. ... Atom seems to be what I want Emacs to be 1: an editor that’s extensible, mode-less and actively developed even though it is, sadly, just as heavy." —Lorenzo Villani, lorenzo.villani.me (06 Sep 2015)
Atom is a text editor that was originally conceived at GitHub as a way to combine the visual appeal of editors like Sublime Text with the extensibility and programmability of Emacs or Eclipse.

Additional Packages

Portability Notes

  • Atom writes non essential data to Windows data folders while running.
  • Java portable—if used—writes to Windows registry and data folders while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.

Waterfox Portable, the World's Fastest Browser...probably ;)!
"...just because the binary is built for a 64-bit operating system doesn't necessarily indicate that the performance of the application is going to be better than its 32-bit counterpart." —Matthew Nawrocki, TechRepublic.com (April 20, 2012, 8:43 AM)
"Waterfox is the 64-bit version of Firefox whose main purpose is browsing speed. Its powerful features and customization possibilities make it a great browsing tool for 64-bit computer users." —Mihaela Citea, Softpedia.com (February 10th, 2015)
"Although Firefox outperformed Waterfox in Peacekeeper browser benchmark tests run by TechRepublic in 2012, Waterfox showed a mild improvement over Firefox in tests run by Softpedia in 2014." —Wikipedia.org (17 February 2015, at 19:49)
Waterfox is a high performance browser based on the Mozilla platform. Made specifically for 64-Bit systems, Waterfox has one thing in mind: speed.

Portable plugins

NPAPI-friendly browsers

  • If you still need NPAPI-type plug-ins like Java (64 bit), Silverlight (64 bit)—other than Waterfox—you can also use pcxFirefox (32/64 bit).

Portability Notes

  • Waterfox writes non essential data to Windows registry and data folders while running.
  • Flash player, Silverlight, Java/JRE plugins writes to Windows registry and data folders while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.

Our Takes

  • Too bad the developer removes some of standard Mozilla Firefox's features from Waterfox. It makes it feels like something is missing.
  • But the decision to keep support for all NPAPI plugins is very welcome.

GeoGebra Classic Portable, dynamic mathematics for learning and teaching!
"GeoGebra is interactive and challenging, but kids might get frustrated and give up if they don't get clear directions." —Emily Pohlonski, commonsense.org (May 2013)
"GeoGebra is an impressive geometry and calculus exploratory tool. I tend to use it as an exploratory tool when I need something quick. ...more intelligent than MS Math 4.0, ...but the audience for each product is not exactly the same. Having the 2 products will give you some excellent tools for exploring mathematics." —Murray Bourne, IntMath.com (19 Feb 2015)
"GeoGebra is a fantastic tool for math students of all ages from elementary school to higher ed. The learning curve is a little bit steep if you or your students are going to create your own material, but there are also thousands of resources available that you can use right away!" —Kirsten Babin, babinedtechreviews.weebly.com (12/17/2014)
GeoGebra is a free software program that lets kids create mathematical constructions and models.  They drag objects and adjust parameters to explore algebra and geometry simultaneously.

GeoGebra Editions

  • GeoGebra has two editions:
    • GeoGebra Math Apps which is based on Electron/Chromium, and
    • the older GeoGebra Classic for Desktop which is based on Java/Qt.
  • We recommend GeoGebra Classic for Desktop since it's 100% portable.

Portability Notes

  • GeoGebra Classic is 100% portable, but its dependencies: Qt and Java write non essential data to Windows registry and data folders while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.

WhatsApp Portable, Simple. Secure. Reliable messaging!
"In a quick session with the app, I found it fast and responsive. A desktop app may feel like a small thing, but messaging apps derive part of their power from ubiquity — the more places you can access them, the more often you'll use them. WhatsApp has more than 1 billion users already. As of today, they have one more reason to keep it open all day." —Casey Newton@CaseyNewton, theverge.com (May 10, 2016, 7:08pm EDT)
"The apps are synced with WhatsApp on your mobile device so you won't miss any messages. ... The apps run on your desktop, meaning you'll have support for things like native desktop notifications and keyboard shortcuts." —Angela Moscaritolo, PCMag.com (May 11, 2016 10:50AM EST)
"Great app. All I need. ... Helps me to stay connected, easy to navigate." —sheilaksm (a user), download.cnet.com (April 14, 2017)

Glary Utilities Portable, The No. 1 Free, Powerful and All-in-one utility for cleaning your PC!
"Glarysoft's Glary Utilities is one of the most consistently popular and most frequently recommended system utilities, and why not?" —Dan Russell (CNET Editor), download.CNET.com (August 29, 2012)

It is not very effective at extracting files with readable content, even when their condition for extraction says "very good."
