Re: What happened with the Tor USB Keychain idea?

Unless you specify in torrrc, it's going to save configs, keys, etc. to the local system, which is not good obviously! as for ease-of-use, does Portable Firefox, etc. do a complete RAW FS format of the memory card, or does it just install by copying stuff to a folder or whatever? If it's the former, and the code is available, it wouldn't be that hard to come up w/ an FS image with all that software on it. All you'd have to do would be to install the image to the USB stick, and there you'd be, pending a few config tweaks afterwards of course.

I got portable firefox, and installed the regular version of tor (windows)
onto the thumbdrive. Worked fine, as far as I could tell.  I never paid much
attention to what, if anything, tor saved in user settings or whatever.
