logoIron Portable 14.0.850.0 has been released. SRWare Iron is 'The browser of the future' - based on the free Sourcecode "Chromium" - but without some features that privacy advocates object to. This release updates Iron to the latest version, improves portability and adds automatic support for the jPortable portable Java runtime environment. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. And it's open source and completely free.

Iron is packaged for portable use with permission from SRWare.

Update automatically or install from the app store in the Platform Pre-Release.


ScreenshotIron is based on the open source Chromium source code that the Google Chrome browser is based on. Iron does not include the unique ids, timestamps, custom error pages and other information present in some Google Chrome packages.

Iron Portable is packaged in a Installer so it will automatically detect an existing installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.


Iron Portable is available for immediate download from the Iron Portable homepage. Get it today!

I've given myself a note to use this next time. I'll implement it in the Chrome update coming tomorrow as well.

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

Hi John T. Haller, first of all thanks for this great work you are doing; i want to report a problem after a forced restart on an PC running Iron Portable 14, when i try to open iron i get a message that say another instance of Iron is closing, please wait before run again, now evrey PC that i try i get this message, i think something is wrong because i never see this message before.


I had something similar happen a few months ago - as I recall, the solution was to delete a particular file in the Iron Portable directory. I don't remember what it was, but it wasn't too hard to find the answer.

I find the file Data\PortableApps.comLauncherRuntimeData-IronPortable.ini open to see and when i see this line:


i renamed a run Iron, now is working again!

Thank you guys for helping me to find the solution.
