Portability to maintain a half dozen "cloud" logins in the browser?

Submitted by AnthonyB on June 14, 2021 - 5:28pm

I am moving a lot between home and the office and I would love to leverage Portable Chrome to be logged in to my work e-mail, calendar, chat service, and a few other sites with my work account, and then just move that USB stick to a different computer, open up my Portable Chrome, and still be logged in and have it automatically go to the exact pages I was at when I left the office.

Google Chrome vers 91.0.4472.101 -- SAVE AS fails.

Submitted by mavc on June 13, 2021 - 8:56pm

I just did a full update to Portable Chrome. As soon as I opened it I noticed a distinct slowness but that is not my complaint. What is my complaint is that when I try to save a page either by Ctrl+S or by right-clicking Save as... it totally FAILS to popup a save dialog. It also does not matter what the page is, this is a universal failure.

The message says "The downloaded copy of Google Chrome (64-bit Test) is not valid & can not be installed. This could be due to an incomplete download or other network issue. Please try running the updater again when complete."

This morning, the update went OK on my work computer.
Tonight, it doesn't work on my home computer.
