One slick way to bring your browsing environment with you everywhere you go is to use a portable version of Firefox that runs from USB drive. Thanks to the determined efforts of developer John Haller, you can download and install a free, customized version of Firefox 2.0, and install it on your thumb drive with a couple of clicks.

Haller explains it all on his website, where he offers a whole suite of portable applications, including Mozilla Foundation's Thunderbird e-mail program
