Why use a portable version of Chrome? Well, for the same reasons that you would use any portable software. Your favorite apps, in a USB drive, and privacy.

I personally use the portable version of Mozilla Firefox 3 for most of my everyday surfing. Somehow, the idea that portable software do not install a pile of crap into my PC makes me feel good.

However, portable Google Chrome is not perfect. Read this from the creator:
