Portable Firefox and password programs

Now, you can run the Firefox web browser off a portable USB drive. JohnHaller.com has this and other portable apps, including calendering, web authoring, and OpenOffice. Most excellent!

Now I can go anywhere and launch my customized version of Firefox with my bookmarks. There’s an amazing number of extensions for Firefox too. I use FireFTP to ftp, and FasterFox to speed things up and to block those annoying Flash popup ads that regular popup blockers don’t stop.

Plus, I’ve got my password program on the USB drive too.

Dunno about you, but with multiple websites and blogs plus dozens of other sites I visit, there’s gaggle of passwords to keep track of. I use security expert Bruce Schneier’s Password Safe. It’s open source, easy to use, and uses Blowfish encryption.
