Anyone else using portable software?

Lately I've become a huge fan of portable......well, pretty much portable anything.

I'm currently using portable Firefox which installs and runs directly from my flash drive. I also use portable open office (which enables you to save your documents in excel, word, powerpoint, PDF, etc. format), & Sunbird (calendar application).

Here's a link to the creators website that lists a few portable applications:

I love the pocket firefox because I never have to worry about losing my favorites or any settings & extensions.

Open office is pretty damn good too (although I couldn't run the beta version) even though it's a pretty big program.

If you know of any other portable programs, please share them.
