Is 'Private Browsing' now redundant?

Submitted by JonBoy on March 27, 2018 - 5:57am

Does 'Private Browsing by' still fulfill its purpose or should it now be re-positioned or officially retired?

In 4.1 the built-in extensions are now deactivated and I wonder if, overall, users trying the app believing it provides "a more-advanced private browsing feature" are being encouraged to have expectations that are simply not being met.

Perhaps it still has value but it's not clear to me from the description and the current configuration where that value lies - though I'd be happy to be enlightened.

Curious about Chrome 64 bit

Submitted by Jaladhjin on March 13, 2018 - 12:37pm

So I'm pretty confident my last install of Portable Chrome was via:

I did not have & do not want the traditional Portable Chrome installed alongside it..

I went to check the About just to ensure it was 64 bit after using it for awhile & noticed it's showing 32 bit..

Does the PA installer/updater overwite the 64 bit build with 32 bit if I ever let it update?

Submitted by user 9008 on March 3, 2018 - 5:01pm

my question about google chrome
I understand that firefox leaves nothing behind
but in chrome the certificates are not portable
so chrome stores certificates locally. meaning chrome saves them in the device I am using right ?
so what are these certificates ? and what is its purpose ?
can they reveal what i am doing ?
like my browsing history ? or the sites i have visited?
please help
how to delete them ?
( Clear browsing data ) delete them ?

Increase Cache Size of Opera Portable

Submitted by JT83 on February 23, 2018 - 4:16pm

If I'm not mistaken, the older or previous versions of Opera (I don't remember which one, but it's quite old, maybe in 30 or 40 branch) did not seem to limit the cache. I remember my cache folder had over 500MB in size once. The problem is the new Opera seems to limit the cache size to around 250-260MB. I am accessing my online album for photography very often and I like to keep everything cached for faster and shorter loading/access time, especially when I travel and have to use slow connection at the place I visit.

Opera, Portable Edition persistent aborts and corruption

Submitted by OzPortableLongTerm on February 9, 2018 - 6:40am

For a number of Opera releases now, I am experiencing persistent Opera Portable problems that have rendered it unreliable to the point of being unuseable.

Some symptoms:
- On startup within PortableApps, Opera will start with, apparently, a fresh, initialised profile and all user settings, extensions, bookmarks will be missing. This does not correlate with any other observable changes. It does not happen following an upgrade. It just happens, frequently.

Chrome is not portable!

I found Logs in my AppData dir:

Not at all nice.
