|Standalone Chrome installer that's not on a web page blocked by my site blocking filter which filters download sites?||Gorgor||5/29/09 11:41 AM|
I can't use the preferred updater-does-download, nor download the "offline" standalone installer because both are blocked by my site's filter software that blocks, among other things, download sites. I've found several using Google that are not on Google, but I'm scared. The one I downloaded was here:
But I don't know if it's kosher or not. It was the very first link Google returned for "download the stand-alone google chrome installer".
Is it ok? Is there an official standalone that isn't here, which is blocked:
BTW, the block occurs *after* I click "I accept", in both cases.
Hehe, and that site redirects to Rapidshare, which, curiously, is not blocked.

Your request was denied because of its content categorization: "Software Downloads"

Meh I'll d/l it this weekend from the official site and bring it in on USB Monday.

Chrome downloads a Setup file. I am not if it requires access to Internet to download more files. You can test at home.

Yes, there are two ways to install Chrome. The first downloads a tiny program, and *that* program downloads and installs the whole thing.
The second way is to download a gigantic standalone installer program. This contains everything, and can then be run offline, or on a computer that the way above won't work.
And I didn't d/l it this weekend, so I'm stoll COL (Chrome Outta Luck).
Like I said, I did download something from the web site above, but I don't want to install it until someone tells me it is a kosher version. It's definitely not named the same thing the official d/l version is named.

Let me rephrase the question.
If you search on Google for "Google chrome standalone browser", this is the first link. *Is it a kosher install?*

I hope that helps.
It works fine for me.

Where does "FileHippo" gets their installers?
I like that their installer won't install the "Auto Updater".

My company also blocks the google installer. And USB drives are also disabled.
I was able to download using the offline installer link above. (Thanks Jinu).
At a philosophical level, I don't understand what google *has* to force downloads through their stupid installer app? Perhaps someone from Google may be able to explain it better. The world has moved on (Safari, firefox, IE, sourceforge... i could go on). Practically NO one else forces that. And chrome is just a 12 MB file. Whats the point of the heartburn?
Same thing with the Andriod installer. The iPhone SDK is a 3 GB download. Straight download - no f**king around with installers! But not for andriod! Thats the reason why I not yet been able to setup an andriod dev env. My machine is completely sandboxed - everything must go through the company proxies! And setting up the proxy for andriod setup has been a hellish experience.
Google... of all companies... is the one I would expect the most to make things simpler!
... sigh ... f**cking pi**es me off

One should replace <Version Number> with the version he want to download.
For instance, If one wants to download the latest stable release - 5.0.375.55 he should refer to:
For the latest Dev release - 6.0.408.1:

I am guessing Google uses this method for analytics. To know exactly who downloaded/installed when. so people like me with proxy or firewall or country firewall issues have to go through big damn pain.

it's damn shame, just because of this damn issue I am now forced to switch to Opera since it's the closest damn browsing experience to Chrome.

|burgerbot3k||11/5/10 2:49 PM|
Leon8121: have you tried uninstalling the OLD version first?
Also you should delete your reply in the download thread.
|Ten98||11/24/10 6:15 AM|
Akohistani your link is blocked for me on my work network.
http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?standalone=1 is also blocked for me.
I found that I could download and install maybe not the most recent version of chrome, but certainly a nice up to date version by following this link:
Hope this helps someone else get off the horror of Internet Explorer at work ;)

I would like to try Chrome BUT I will NOT accept a web installer.
A full standalone installer, without autoupdatecrapware please.
Nothing more, nothing less. Standalone is best (for me, at least)
