Comodo IceDragon can also be installed in portable mode. As the name suggests, portable mode allows users to quickly launch and use their pre-configured Comodo IceDragon on any computer without the need to install, import bookmarks or modify settings.
In portable mode, the user profile (configuration data) is written to the IceDragon installation folder instead of the Windows ‘user’ folder on the local machine. Therefore, by simply copying the installation folder to another drive (such as a USB fob or a drive on another computer), you will be able to launch and use your personalized Comodo IceDragon.
Portable mode must be selected during the installation process:
There are a few differences to setup if portable mode is selected:
- The 'Import Settings' and 'Secure DNS' dialog boxes will not be shown during the installation process
- The Installer does not write anything to the Windows registry
- Uninstaller is not created
- User profile is stored in the "User Data" folder inside the main Comodo IceDragon installation folder.
