Download Google Chrome Redistributable Package (Offline Installer)

By default, the Google Chrome browser can currently only be downloaded and installed while connected to the Internet. There is no executable (EXE) file that you download and run to install Google Chrome.

However, for IT administrators who want to install Chrome on computers not connected to the Internet or want to install Chrome onto many computers at once, this is not a very good option.

If you can download an offline installer for Google Chrome, distributing the browser to hundreds or even thousands of computers via Active Directory would be a breeze. Luckily, there’s an easy way to download an offline installer for Google Chrome using a bit of a URL hack.

You can download the latest official offline version of the Google Chrome browser by clicking on this link:

http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?standalone=1

Note the parameter standalone=1 appended to the end of the URL. This will get your the full installer that you can then install on your local system without having to be connected to the Internet.

You can also download the latest official offline version of the beta Google Chrome browser using this link:

http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?extra=betachannel&standalone=1

The only possible downside to using these offline installers is that the auto-update option may not work properly. So just keep that in mind when using the offline installer to distribute the software to many computers at once. Enjoy! [via gHacks]
