So after all these years I finally sprung for a thumb drive.

Now I want to run my most necessary software from it, so that I can
work from any system that has a free usb port.

I thought hey, I'll just set up an html menu.  But all the browsers I
have configured want to save the executables for me, not run them.
And in truth, I don't want .exe files (windoze) running as a matter of
course, only if they're on localhost.

Any suggestions on how to use html and a broser to do what the windoze
start-menu does?  Other suggestions on how to set things up on a
removable drive so they're independent of the system configuration?
