Tell us about the current experience

At work and at home I often work between many different PCs and usually carry all my work applications on a usb stick for consistency and productivity. It also greatly simplifies backing up and migrating settings from one computer to another when needed.

Web apps in particular are simultaneously very portable and very annoying to use on shared computers because of the constant logging in/out needed. Being able to carry an instance of Station containing all my most used apps would be great!

:fire: DESCRIBE THE IMPACT
How would it change your experience

The main advantages for me are:

  • Easily move between computers carrying my workspace with me.
  • Easily backup/copy station instances since they’d be contained in a folder.
