Is there a portable IE 10 version?

Perhaps a portable package that runs virtualized. Currently I am running Win8 with IE 10 inside a VW, which eats up much more resources than I would like.

I require IE 10 for compatibility testing of web projects.

Not that I'm aware of, other browsers yes, but not IE. – HaydnWVN Sep 26 '12 at 7:31

You can try Maxthon portable from Portable Apps. This browser can use IE rendering engine, among others.

But does come with the IE10 Engine? – thenonhacker Jul 21 '15 at 8:06

It has its limitations, but IETester might help.

are the requirements an installed version of IE? – Lo Sauer Sep 28 '12 at 6:04
I haven't tried it yet, but I assume as per this page that copying the files from any working installation of IE 10 should work. – Karan Sep 28 '12 at 17:38
