Linux users will be glad to see that there's a site for Linux portable apps featuring a number of popular programs along with some for those with more technical experience.
Portable applications (that is, programs that can run on portable devices like USB flash drive and make little to no changes on your system) for Windows have been around for a while, it's great to see them being created for Linux. The article below has a guide on how to use them, a much appreciated feature for those of us who are new to, or dabble in, Linux.
Note that some of the downloads are pretty large, such as OpenOffice, while others like Firefox, KeePass, Opera, and Dropbox are better suited to slower connections.
