Pocket K-meleon - web browsing with no install and no tracks left behind

Notes from ClifNotes, Feb 2008, permalink Web Browser

 

I've mentioned this web browser before. K-meleon (sounds like "chameleon") is like a little brother to Firefox and Seamonkey. Here's a quote from the K-meleon website at SourceForge.

 

K-Meleon is an extremely fast, customizable, lightweight web browser for the Win32 (Windows) platform based on the Gecko layout engine (the rendering engine of Mozilla). K-Meleon is free, open source software released under the GNU General Public License.

 

I use it often at work. In my experience, it's much faster than Firefox and IE while surfing. It's light weight and fires up fairly quickly.

 

I recently found this portable version and it's just what I needed on my USB stick.

 

Quote from the Apps To Go website

Pocket K-Meleon is a fully portable and compressed packaging of K-Meleon 1.x. No special launcher is needed and only a single profile is used. (If you want multiple profiles, use KMprof to launch Pocket K-Meleon.) By default, the size of the browser disk cache and length of history have been set to zero to extend the life of USB flash drives.

 

To install, simply unzip all folders and files to a folder of your choice on any read/write drive. Then run the browser via K-Meleon.exe.
