Sync .paf apps between desktop and USB device

I have used PortableApps for many, many, years. Just on my desktop in recent years. I used to keep a flash drive and a desktop installed PortableApps platforms in sync with each other. I do not see how to do that anymore. So far, I do not see syncing mentioned on the site - except a couple minor irrelevant references.

Years ago: I would work on one or the other, plug my flash drive into my PC, and they would sync.

Can PortableApps apps on separate devices be synced?

I need a flash drive version of my desktop installed PortableApps to be in sync - in app files and changes.

Firefox Sync

I'd recommend just installing separate instances of Firefox Portable and then configuring Firefox Sync. It works very well syncing multiple instances of Firefox on desktop, laptop, USB, cloud, and on Android.

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

Thanks! I love the quick

Thanks! I love the quick response. I have used Firefox for a billion years - but it is not as good as it used to be, sadly. I primarily use Chrome, I can open up tabs and windows from other devices, plus history, etc., and it has powerful, stable, extensions.

I think I need to rethink my question.

Cheers!

Barely Portable

Unfortunately, Chrome is just barely portable these days. You have to login to Google just for extensions, search changes, homepage changes, etc to work as you move around (as indicated on the app homepage and in the license on install). If it's working for you, you can sync Chrome's settings that way.

Firefox generally outperforms Chrome again these days and lets you share tabs, history, bookmarks, etc between devices
