Yes, it is.

We can't distribute the original Chrome version because it's not portable at all. So SyMenu Google Chrome is a thumbapps' re-package version.
Unfortunately Ronny, the mind behind the thumbapps project, is gradually abandoning his activity and his programs become increasingly outdated.
If someone knows another Google Chrome portable version I can change the source for SyMenu, but the last time I checked the Ronny's one was the only one.

Nope.

I can add Chromium as a new program but, although Chrome uses its same engine, they are completely different.

So Chroumium can't be a good replacement for the thumbapps' Google Chrome.

Why you said that?
I've just added Chromium as a new program. You'll find it among the SyMenu Suite starting from tomorrow.
So it's up to you to decide if you want to continue using the outdated Chrome portable or to install the new Chromium.

Tomorrow you'll have both choices.

Unfortunately PortableApps is not a viable solution.

PA "self-proclaims itself as an open and friendly community" but indeed it is not so open neither friendly as it seems.


You can search on Google to know the war they declared to SyMenu and to Lupo Pen Suite and to ASuite and who knows how many others launchers.

Do you remember the Microsoft ways at the beginning of their history?
If you don't, please watch this Simpsons interpretation to refresh your memory: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H27rfr59RiE

Well PA has very similar manners, without the money part... smile
If you are curious about the topic you can start your reading from this thread: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105572

I'm not saying that people belonging to PA community are conscious about this evil attitude. On the contrary, they contribute with their work, enthusiasm, and free time to create the PA program suite for free and I guess they would like their programs could be also used outside the boundary of the PA official launcher. I imagine they can even bear that SyMenu, the terrible PA enemy, could be one of the user...

Unfortunately the reality is far different because at the top of PA pyramid there is a person who has completely different ideas from his entire community.

No tenia ni idea. Mal vamos con estas cuestiones. Uso Linux a diario y cuando necesito Windows uso sólo portables. Y estas peleas me temo que no llevan a ninguna parte. De todas las suites portables SyMenu es la más completa, con diferencia. Sigue así.

I had no idea. We are wrong with these questions. I use Linux daily and when I need Windows I use only portables. And these fights I'm afraid don't lead anywhere. Of all the portable suites, SyMenu is the most complete by far. Keep it up.
