Take Firefox with You

Install a portable version of Firefox so that you can move from computer to computer.

This hack explains how to take Firefox with you wherever you go. You can install Firefox on a number of mobile devices. Whether it can run directly on the device, write data there, or merely be stored conveniently depends on the device. We’ll consider these devices:

  • A laptop

  • A server-based virtual private network (VPN)

  • A roaming VPN

  • A mobile consumer device, such as a digital camera, mobile phone, or PDA

  • A USB drive

  • A RAM drive

It’s the so-called removable media (USB and RAM drives) that are the interesting cases. Let’s briefly dispose of the other possibilities first.
