I travel a lot and very often I need to access my mail and the Internet from various locations. However, I don’t have a laptop and so I often need to access information from public places and computer in other offices. Is there any way I could keep my familiar web browser and POP mail client with me and use this to access the Internet?

Yes! I do this myself. Thunderbird Portable is one portable e-mail client that will not only store your POP3/IMAP/SMTP protocols, but your addresses and local folders as well, on a flashdrive. Which browser are you used to? Most browsers come in portable versions. There are some portable IE browsers out there, but they usually don't work as well since IE is more integrated with Windows. Here's a good place to start your search for portable applications: http://portableapps.com/ For my menu launcher, I use PStart. But PortableApps has their own that may be a little less technical.
