Free Portable Apps and Games to take with you on a USB Flash Drive.
Portable Standalone Software, Freeware, Games, and Open Source Pen Drive Applications that can be stored and then run directly from a USB Flash Drive. All without the need to install the software to a PC. Bring your office applications, email, web browser, instant messaging, games, graphical editors, media player, antivirus, recovery tools, encryption utilities, P2P file sharing utilities and more with you.
Most of this standalone software has been created by their respective authors with the intent to be run entirely from a removable device. Sometimes even allowing users to save their changes and personalized settings back to the same device. Additionally, some may also be available as a stand alone executable. In which case everything is self contained. Making it so you won’t need to keep track of multiple folders and files.

Though I have plans to review and include Mac and Linux portables as well. All at a later point in time.
