Best apps to carry on your USB stick

The world is not a perfect place. Ever so often, one has to work on someone's computer which is lacking in some small irritating way compared to yours. You are craving for what you are used to, yet don't want to change anything on the machine.

Today we will tell you the best portable apps to carry around in your USB stick and use at work, school or any other place. These small executables are self-sufficient and don't modify anything on the computer, making them extremely handy in a number of situations.

1. VLC Media Player - Multi-format media player

The world's favorite all format media player is the most obvious inclusion. You'll no longer curse the computer for not having the codecs to run your video file.

2. Foxit PDF Reader - PDF File Viewer

The stupid machind doesn't open PDF files? No qualms, just use this lightweight reader. Infact we recommend this over Adobe Reader for day-to-day use. Unlike the former, it doesn't take ages to load and is especially great for computers low on resources.

3. Google Chrome Portable - Web Browser

Arguably the fastest browser today, it can often save you the option of working on Internet Explorer on a surprisingly large number of computers.

4. 7zip - File Archiver and Extractor

Quickly extract zip, rar and 7z with this tiny freeware.

5. Tools from NirSoft - Password Recovery

Check out NirSoft's utilities. You can never know when you might need one on a remote computer.
