Portable Browsers for Windows 10/8/7

I have compiled a list of portable editions of various web browsers for Windows 10/8/7, which you carry with you anywhere on your USB pen drive. You can take your bookmarks, extensions and saved passwords, etc together with you, where ever you go.

    I would add the TOR browser bundle as a variation of firefox to that list. I have that on a USB stick. https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en? – perfect for anonymously surfing the web.
