    Google Chrome Portable - Over the network

    Hi all,

    One of our teachers has a consistant weird problem while trying to access a particular website which contains teaching materials. We use IE has standard and have to stick with version 8 as it is the only thing that works properly with our intranet (dont ask!).

    I had the idea of offering a second browser just to this one user, then I found Google Chrome portable. Quite rightly we disable running .exe's from memory sticks so I thought that I could put it in a shared location and the user could run it from there.

    I have tried this and although the software seems to launch without problem it then seems to hang. I have also tried installing it to USB and sharing that, but the same thing happened.

    Has anyone had any luck running Google Chrome Portable across a network in this manner?

    hmmm strange, well I decided to try Firefox portable instead. That seemed to work nicely!

    Will just go with that instead I think
