Submitted by John T. Haller on January 13, 2013 - 1:17am
jPortable Browser Switch 1.0 has been released. jPortable Browser Switch allows you to easily enable or disable the browser plugin bundled with jPortable. Note that it will not enable or disable Java detected on the local machine by your browser. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Platform. And it's open source and completely free.
jPortable Browser Switch allows you to easily enable and disable the jPortable Java browser plugin so that you can continue to use Java with apps like LibreOffice Portable while making Java unavailable to your portable browsers like Firefox Portable and Chrome Portable. This can be useful for security reasons or simple convenience.
Important Note: Even with the jPortable Java browser plugin disabled, your browser may use the local machine's Java plugin if Java is installed. It can be disabled within Add-Ons in Firefox; chrome://plugins within Chrome, Iron, or Chromium; about:plugins within Opera and similar locations in other browsers.
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
jPortable Browser Switch is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.
jPortable Browser Switch is available for immediate download from the jPortable Browser Switch homepage. Get it today!
