Passwords Not Saved Between PCs By Default: Google Chrome stores passwords in such a way that they are encrypted in a way tied to current PC. While the passwords are not kept or left behind on the PC itself, they won't be retrievable when you move to a new PC. We've added password portability as an advanced option, though, which you can enable by reading the help.html file.

Certificates Not Portable: Google Chrome has no certificate manager. It uses Windows' certificates manager. So, any certificates you install through the Google Chrome interface are stored on the current local machine and will not travel with you. Thus, you should not use any private certificates with Google Chrome except on your own PC.

Some Settings Locked Per PC: Google Chrome now locks specific settings to a given PC. Details are within this bug. A suggested workaround is to sign in to Google to restore all settings and extensions and to use an extension such as Session Buddy to maintain your session state as you move PCs. Note that PortableApps.com has no evaluated this extension.

Google Chrome Portable Beta, Dev, 64-bit

For testers, developers and other advanced users, the dev and beta releases of Google Chrome is also available as a portable app. It will install alongside your standard install of Google Chrome in a GoogleChromePortableDev or GoogleChromePortableBeta folder, allowing you to test out the upcoming version without impacting your main Google Chrome Portable install. Please note that this is not intended to be used as your primary, everyday browser as it is not even to beta build quality. It will be updated as time permits to allow people to try out upcoming features of Chrome.

For help getting this app up and running, please read the following:

Performance Note: Google Chrome Portable may run slowly from some flash drives. You can speed this up by copying GoogleChromePortable.ini from the GoogleChromePortable\Other\Source directory to the GoogleChromePortable directory and editing it to set RunLocally=true. If you do so, be sure to allow Google Chrome Portable time to copy your profile back after shutting it down. Of course, there are privacy implications to copying your personal data locally to a PC not under your control.
