Latest mobile treat: Chrome-on-a-stick!

GooglechromelogoLooking to use the line: "Is that Google Chrome in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" Wait no more… but I suggest losing the lame line. Hop over and grab Portable Chrome, a copy of the lightweight Google browser that runs from a USB stick. Version is just 11 Megabytes in size, so you could even use a 64 MB stick from 2001 for this.

Why would you want to? Most folks run portable apps from USB drives because all of their data stays on the drive and doesn’t reside on the host PC used to run the app. For the security conscious, that’s a big plus. With all of those new-fangled netbooks with limited solid state drive capacities, you might want portable apps so you don’t have to worry about how much free space is left on your device as well. Portable Chrome is supported (well, tested really) on Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista.

heh, makes me think of old adventure games.

if you wanted into some market in one of these games, you would find some food stall that would sell something or other on a stick, without fail.
