Portable Apps Platform & Updater [Desktop]
PortableApps.com is a website offering many free, commonly used Windows applications that have been specially packaged for portability. These portable applications can be used from removable media such as USB flash drives. User data is stored in a subfolder, allowing the user to upgrade or move the software without affecting the data. To remove the software, a user can simply delete the main folder.
The PortableApps.com Launcher (also known as PAL) is used to make applications portable by handling path redirection, environment variable changes, file and directory movement, configuration file path updates and similar changes, as configured. The PortableApps.com Launcher allows software to be made portable without the need to write custom code or make changes to the base application. While some of the software packages released on PortableApps.com currently still contain their own custom launchers, the PortableApps.com Launcher is used in all new apps released.

A portable app is a software that will not take an effect to your running system. What happens in a portable app stays in a portable app. That means that you can carry around your applications on a portable device and use it on any computer.
But to be honest, my focus isn't only to get applications for my portable devices. It's also nice that it doesn't matter how many applications you have installed, it has absolutely no negative effect on your system performance. Your system is always fast and clean.
