I have just discovered this portable apps thing and it looks really promising ... I have been using U3 on a 2Gb Titanium and really like it ... barring the trace (upto 20Mb worth!!) files that are left on the machine in the Application Data folder.
I have just bought a U3 8Gb Contour but before I go through the transition to the new drive I want to decide whether this portableapps is worth changing to I would like to know if this "fully" runs from the flash drive and places (not just leaves) no files on the host PC at all?
Also ... what is it like for speed compared to the U3, in particular FF2. I like the idea of FF3 but notice some reports of slow performance and would stick to FF2 if it as quick as on U3, of course if FF3 is generally that quick then that would be cool. Its main use is as a browser so i can keep favourites and browsing history/zotero (what a plugin!!) with me at all times.
I may well be persuaded to ditch U3 altogether if all the promising things I have seen today are born out. If I do and I have a change of heart later is it possible to revert back to U3 from a freshly formatted device do you know?
Many thanks in advance
