A web browser installed on a removable disk makes it a portable one. The main motive behind the development of a portable web browser is to personalize the browsing session of the user by limiting the history residues. The enhanced privacy benefits the user at large by reducing the interaction of browsing activity with the computer disk, but poses a challenge for forensic examiners to collect evidence in case of cyber crimes and internet fraud. This paper examines the need of developing a methodology which would help the investigators to tackle the situation and collect evidence to prove the crime.
