    Right.
    I have been using 'MyPal', mainly for Quora, (have to log in with a gOOGLE account), Quora runs much MUCH faster/smoother with MyPal. Its not portable tho, and I dont want to install it on every comp I have w/ i-net connections.

    MyPal IS portable - when you run the installer it asks you if you want to install it in portable mode. I have run it from USB flash drive on various computers without issues. All my bookmarks, extensions, history etc. are there even on Windows 10.

    I am using 28.2.2 but all of Feodor's browsers (MyPal and Centaury) had the option to install as portable. Those are no longer available from his Github repository due to a dispute with Palemoon developer Moonchild.

    There are other sites that claim to host MyPal but none of those are maintained by Feodor so that may be why there is no option for portable.

    Just FYI ... when it comes to come of those sketchy installers, honestly, I'd rather use something like 7 zip to unpack it and take it from there rather than take a chance. Currently, for 360 Chrome, Mypal 68, Serpent, they are portable, but I'm not sure whom is behind the continuation of those old mypal installers as I see them on various sites still being offered at https://mypal-browser.org/release/ ... please use caution unless someone here trusts and can confirm they are safe to use.

    Please correct me if I am wrong!

    Take care :)
