Although my question concerns Firefox 2.0, I'm interested in the generic question:
why install when there is portable version
- why would anyone want to install a program on hard disk when a portable version exists?
It seems a portable program is a cleaner / simpler solution in all respects than an installed program. (Less mess in the registry, no uninstall problems, and portable on movable devices.)
What am I missing? Are there *any* downsides to portable software (speed of execution, update...?)
