U3 version: Firefox 3 Final Portable U3

Posted on February 8, 2009. Filed under: browsers, Firefox, Flash drives, Freeware/Shareware | Tags: , , , , , , |

[update 2009.3.7]

(The Firefox on the regular U3 sites may still be only version 2.)

Oops!  The link for the original version of this post has been hijacked or forwarded to something unrelated to Firefox 3 for U3.

There are versions out there, but I can’t be sure if they are safe (uninfected, no trojans, etc.)

One possible source is here or more directly from here.   I can’t guarantee safety of this version.  Click on the “free user” dial and wait for the countdown, then proceed as instructed.

You’ll need tell it to update as soon as you get it installed, and then get the latest versions of your addons.

Slax is a Linus system that is specifically designed for CD, USB Flash Key, MP3 Player, Camera or even a Hard Drive.

“Slax is a modern, portable, small and fast Linux operating system with a modular approach and outstanding design. Despite its small size, Slax provides a wide collection of pre-installed software for daily use, including a well organized graphical user interface and useful recovery tools for system administrators.

The modular approach gives you the ability to include any other software in Slax easily. If you’re missing your favourite text editor, networking tool or game, simply download a module with the software and copy it to Slax, no need to install, no need to configure.”

NetSwitcher for laptop use many places

Posted on November 26, 2007. Filed under: Everything, Freeware/Shareware, Hardware, Techniques, Utilities | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

NetSwitcher is NOT freeware; it is shareware with a 30-day trial.

It saves your network settings for a particular place. Save your laptop settings for home, for the campus, for the internet cafe, and use whichever one you need when you need it, without having to go through all the setup every time.
