I'm trying to portabilize a chromium based browser.
The big problem are the extensions...
Someone know where are saved after installed?
You can't portablize extensions in Blink/Chrome-based browsers by design. They are purposely locked per PC and reset as you move. You must login to sync with Google.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
The only chromium-based browser I know that allow portable profile is Cent (https://www.centbrowser.com/).
You can move profile folder to other PC without problem for extensions (unless they are saving settings outside profile folder).
For built-in password manager I can't tell, because I don't use it, but the option "Use current user's credentials to encrypt passwords and cookies" is grayed out so there might be some workaround.
I'm gone in the Cent site, the programmers said it is portable.
I have also seen a list of extensions for Cent browser.
Now I have a question:
All the extensions have the same behaviour or some are portable and other not?
So, they have listed only the extensions portabilized?
You can use chrome extensions.
All extensions that save in profile folder are portable.
But in really rare case it will save settings in registry, but it was year ago that I came across this extension type.
So there shouldn't be problem with extensions.
I think that their list is only recommendation.
I have found another browser that saves portable extensions:

About the profiles, I don't understand a thing:
The launcher create in AppData an empty folder (not used), but save the added extensions in TorchPortable\Data (in portable way).
How is it possible?
