Arora (Webkit based browser) Portable

I know there is the Firefox portable that we all know and love. However, there is a webkit browser that was featured on Lifehacker. It is lean, mean, and open source. I think that a portable webkit browser is something PA.com needs. (1) It allows web developers using Nvu or KompoZer to test websites in webkit portably. (2) It would start up faster than Firefox. Useful for a quick check on something before one leaves. (3) PA wouldn't be much of a platform without choice.

I also realize that this was mentioned before (https://portableapps.com/node/17334). However, it is out of date and the download link is broken. I think the topic needs revitalization.

I'm dumping arora (being the dev of the portable version) and going with QTWeb since it has more features than arora at this moment.

Both?

Any chance we can do both for people who like either or? Shouldn't the launchers be the same?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

well I could do both but launchers no wouldn't be the same since the development of QTWeb and Arora are different from each other since has features that the other doesn't have. I'll look into it over the weekend, but imho qtweb is my choice project over the 2.
