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)

7-zip Portable, a file archiver with a high compression ratio!
"These days, many email providers (including Gmail) snoop into any ZIP file you send, and if it contains executable files, simply don’t let you send it. Compress your executables using 7-Zip, and you can email them to anyone you like." —Erez Zukerman, PCAdvisor.co.uk (26 September 2011)

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.

Firefox Portable, when it’s personal, choose Firefox!
"We’re at a point where we’re as fast as, or faster than Chrome. Compared to a year ago, it’s a huge leap in performance. ... Mozilla uses a US$300 Acer laptop as reference hardware, having established that it’s the most common hardware for its user base." —Cat Ellis, techradar.com (Nov 14, 2017)

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)

"Popcorn Time is the revolutionary app that’s been continuously dubbed the Netflix for torrents. ... The unknown devs also mention other team members who’ve gone on to work on the legal version of Popcorn Time, called Butter...since anonymous developers mean no one can be held accountable if things go awry. ...the site won’t be looking to make money whatsoever.
