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.

More releases...

Single Bit and Dual Bit Releases

You can use these releases interchangeably, both use the same data profile. You can upgrade to the single bit release, or later upgrade it to the dual bit release, or vice versa.
The single bit (32 bit) is for those who want to save space.
The dual bit (32/64 bit) is for users who want to use the 64 bit version of the application on Windows 64 bit. And since it also has 32 bit application binaries, it will still run on Windows 32 bit.

Portable plugins and other NPAPI-friendly browsers

Chromium portable and Chromium-Nik portable compatibility

  • You can upgrade our Chromium-Nik's build portable to this build or vice versa.
  • They share the same portable configuration.
  • Your data will be preserved.

Portability Notes

  • Chromium writes non essential data to Windows registry and data folder while running.
  • Flash Player and IE Tab addon—if installed—writes to Windows registry and data folder while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
