The research supported by real statistics indicates that, Chrome, its source Chromium and countless homologous varieties browsers have overwhelmingly occupied the market of web browsers. Although this is true and not always a good thing.

The possibility of Mozilla Firefox turns the tables depends on whether it can absorb advantages from its homologous varieties (such as Waterfox) and magnify them. As for IE, as long as Windows exists, it won’t go away – which can be attributed to the powerful vitality of a variety of popular applications based on IE. But it still does not have a chance to turn at all.

For web browser that we have to use almost every day, Google Chrome and Chromium’s biggest drawback is that they store their various configurations/profiles and other important data for users in the system partition (C:\ volume). That means once we move its installation directory or reinstall Windows, then all the data and configurations will be lost (trouble is, their manual backup process is very painful and grudging). Even if we can use some specially designed tools (like MozBackup) to automate this operation, it’s also hard to avoid that we always forget such kind of things.

The biggest characteristic of portable edition lies in this, it just save all data generated by Chrome or Chromium inside the browser’s extraction directory. That’s to say, you can take them along with all the related data and configuration profiles anywhere without any concern for the possibility of data loss.

In this post, AppNee will keep updating only the latest multilingual portable versions with important updates (providing CanaryBetaDev & Stable 4 editions of official builds for choice) of Google Chrome and Chromium for Windows (32-bit & 64-bit in one package). And make sure all files are extracted from the official offline setup/standalone installer packages, untouched.

  • Serious bugs exist in Chrome 69, 70 and other versions: 1) very slow startup and page loading; 2) what’s worse – all non-currently active pages will be reloaded and when you activate it again, and this is an endless loop repeating itself. For example, this bug directly results in all the pages that are uploading files being reloaded, thus all uploading processes will be interrupted. That’s why AppNee had to skip these updates for these versions.
  • To initialize your Chrome, just empty the “User Data” folder to make it brand-new.
  • If you find that opening many sites becomes terribly delayed after upgrading to the new version of Chrome, then simply delete the entire “User Data” folder, but do make a backup of bookmarks and extensions beforehand:
    • 1) Enter “\User Data\Default\” folder, copy the ‘Bookmarks‘ file (all your bookmarks are here)
    • 2) Open “chrome://extensions/“, enable the “Developer mode“, then click ‘Pack extension‘, and respectively locate to the folder inside each extension under “\User Data\Default\Extensions\” to implement a one-by-one backup of each extension. Finally, you just need to copy out all the CRX files in all the extension folders. To restore the extension, just drag and drop the corresponding CRX file to browser. Unfortunately, this method never works for me.
    • So, the final solution is to use the “Turn on sync…” feature to backup all important data like website passwords, extensions and bookmarks.
  • To make the Portable version of Chrome the default browser, you can double click to open a local Internet Shortcut (.url) file, and click “Chrome Portable” when prompted choosing an application to open. Otherwise, two kinds of problems may occur:
    • 1) Every time You open Chrome Portable, you are prompted to set it as the default browser
    • 2) Even if the URL link (file) is associated with Chrome successfully, the URL link (file) will still be opened in a new Chrome interface, not in a new tab.

*** AppNee only provides the portable editions for Chrome & Chromium’s important version of updates.

*** In the end, we decided to remove the Chrome’s Beta edition, because it is sandwiched between its Dev and Stable these two editions, as the transitional one that has almost no meaning of existence at AppNee.
