Firefox Portable Review

Sven Sorensen
Editors' Pick

An excellent portable version of the latest Firefox browser

A review of Firefox Portable by Sven Sørensen

Firefox is by far one of the best browsers available thanks to its vast feature-set made available thanks to its addon community. Furthermore, its non-profit mission has made it a viable contender among web browsers.

With that said, it is also available as a portable application separately. That means you can run this iteration of Mozilla Firefox directly from a USB stick, thumb drive or external HDD.

Whether or not you're a newbie or seasoned PC user, your choice of Internet browser can really have an impact on how productive you are. Firefox and its huge list of extensions and addons make browsing the web easier and offer many different functionality above and beyond what a web browser normally does.

The history of Mozilla and Firefox stems from the original Netscape browser from the 90s. After Netscape was eliminated, the source code of the browser continue to evolve into modern-day Mozilla which uses the gecko rendering engine, different from the Trident and Webkit used by Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, respectively.

Mozilla Firefox can be customized to a large degree apart from its addon/extension support. That means you can theme the browser, customize the display of bookmarks (we love the quick links).

Firefox is also excellent at keeping up with the latest web standards and naturally supports HTML5 and HTML5 video -- a huge step forward and away from bug-ridden Adobe Flash.

Overall, Firefox Portable is an excellent browser which we highly recommend to anybody using their PC to browse the world wide web.
