Portable Firefox allows you to carry your whole web
browser along with all your bookmarks and extensions
with you on an iPod, USB thumbdrive, portable hard
drive or any other portable media. You can plug it
right into any Windows computer and use it just like
you would on your own. It is a repackaged version of
the popular Mozilla Firefox browser designed with
portability in mind, so it has all the same great
features of Firefox, but there's nothing to install.

...And there is also a portable Open Office. Check it
