Guess What’s New

December 2nd, 2009 · PortableApps, Programming, Windows

Another new Google Chrome Portable!

I’ve been working on other stuff too, really! ūüôā ¬†Just trying to get the bugs that people report to me out of the way…

Biggest change is the Portable Passwords feature. ¬†It’s opt-in so you’ll need to use the INI to enable it since it creates a bit of a hassle (you need to enter a master password on startup, to keep your passwords safe).

New Google Chrome Portable (Again)

November 7th, 2009 · PortableApps

I made a load of changes this time around.


Oh yeah, I am now featured on! ¬†Hooray! ūüôā

Here’s the main changes for this version:

  • Updated Stable to, Beta to, Dev to
  • Using new versions based on launcher versions rather than Google Chrome versions.
  • Default locations for Beta and Dev builds changed to “GoogleChromePortableTest” and “GoogleChromePortableDev” to fit with PAF.
  • Fixed bug where themes would stop working when GCP’s path or drive letter changed.
  • Added support for Menu language selection. Set UsePAMLanguage to false in the INI to use the user-selected language in Chrome instead.
  • On request of PA community, did more agressive cleanup of registry keys and directories left behind after quitting.
  • Backup and restore local Chrome’s unique identifier information used for collecting usage data.
  • Updated launcher crash cleanup guide.

October 22nd, 2009 · PortableApps, Programming

To celebrate the inclusion of Google Chrome Portable in the official apps list… I’ve, um, started working on it again and fixed all reported bugs.

Fixed a particularly nasty bug where RunLocally and CacheInTemp were always forced on.  Also themes now work properly between sessions.

[Edit: Updated Dev download with the latest Chrome Dev build released today.]

[Edit: Update downloads to remove nsexec which some av products falsely label as malware.]

[Edit: Updated Dev build to *.223.11 which fixes a crash bug with RSS feed extensions.]

    Firefox breaks my TF2 thing!

    August 1st, 2009 · Games, Programming, Website

    Well not really, I think it just was a failure to test it thoroughly on my part, but it’s still odd. ¬†Apparently, in Firefox, a checkbox’s .value property is always “on” even if it isn’t really “on” so all the pictures were coming out with critical backgrounds. ¬†Using “.checked” solved that problem.

    One of these days I’ll style it.

    EasyScreenshot.NET 1.6.2

    July 6th, 2009 · Windows

    Thanks to Clutch for pointing out that ES.NET could use up an obscene amount of memory. ¬†While technically memory leaks aren’t possible in .NET unless you leak unmanaged objects, in this case I was constantly creating large bitmaps and forgetting to .Dispose them, and .NET was taking it’s time in cleaning them up. ¬†This has been fixed in 1.6.1. ¬†Download now.

    [Edit: Fixed a couple bugs in my fix… Capture Clipboard/Desktop won’t crash now, and hotkeys work again. ¬†Oops. ¬†Download updated to 1.6.2]
