A portable application (portable app), sometimes also called standalone, is a program designed to read and write its configuration settings into an accessible folder in the computer, usually in the folder where the portable application can be found. This makes it easier to transfer the program with the user’s preferences and data between different computers. A program that doesn’t have any configuration options can also be a portable application.
Portable applications can be stored on any data storage device, including internal mass storage, a file share, cloud storage or external storage such as USB drives and floppy disks—storing its program files and any configuration information and data on the storage medium alone. If no configuration information is required a portable program can be run from read-only storage such as CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs. Some applications are available in both installable and portable versions.
Firefox creates seperate process for tabs. The default maximum no.of processes is set to 4. But you change it from 1-7 as you need. Note that if you choose more number of processes, more RAM will be used. So unless you are a heavy user and has more RAM don’t change it. Anyway to change no. of content processes, in Firefox open Options and under Performance settings, uncheck Recommended settings option and change the Content process limit.
