Stealth

Just a quick question. Why is Firefox Portable 3.06 not listed as being Stealth by Portablefreeware.com? Listed here - http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=132&ts=1234041238

maybe because they finally

maybe because they finally got it right over there. NONE of our apps are stealth. they may not leave any personal data behind, but some trace is ALWAYS there, in MRU or MUICache or similar.

Nope

*ALL* apps leave behind something, including every single app in their database. Stealth means what we mean (we don't release any apps that are "good enough", they're not allowed to leave other things behind in TEMP, APPDATA, etc... if they do, it's a bug and should be reported and fixed), they just don't classify some of our apps right. But there are a lot of other mistakes in their listings. Many apps are listed as stealth but leave behind an obvious registry key or file in temp. Some apps listed as not stealth actually are.

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

Summary of PortableApps.com Quality Control:

If it's in our applications directory, it's stealth.
