Check the help.html included with it. It's an advanced option to enable it as it is still in testing. Normally, Chrome locks the passwords saved to the current PC. We have the ability in our launcher to unlock it and lock it from PC to PC.

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

The menu bar is gone now, to get it back you have to make a shortcut and add the --bookmark-menu flag, however the shortcut in the portable apps menu will not load this flag.

How can you load flags with the portable apps platform menu launcher?

make a file next to googlechromeportable.exe and call it googlechromeportable.ini.

open the file, then paste in AdditionalParameters=--bookmark-menu

Save the file.

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

I have for near a year the Google Chrome Portable 3 in my USB and now I decided to update for the newer stable version (5) and noticed that there isn't the Incognito executable, the standard launcher for me.

What happened? I don't wan't extension's to be turning ON or OFF, I want the old launcher.
