How to install Google Chrome Offline Installer

Are you looking for a Google Chrome offline installer? Google Chrome is used by millions, if not billions around the world – and installing, uninstalling and interacting with Google Chrome is super easy to use. However, in some cases, you may have a device that is offline or disconnected from the internet and you want to use Chrome.

Although it’s not easy to find, Google Chrome has an offline (otherwise known as a Standalone installer) that allows you to download it from one device with the internet, transfer it to the device without the internet and then can be installed without the need for an internet connection. In today’s TechSplat, we take a look at how you can use the Chrome standalone installer.

How to download Google Chrome Offline (Standalone) Installer

Downloading the Google Chrome standalone installer is exactly like the normal Chrome installer, however how you get the download is a little different. For a start, Google doesn’t publically show you how to download the installer. For this – follow the below steps:

  1. Head to Google’s Standalone Installer Page and Hit “Download Chrome”.
  2. Once here, run through the on-screen instructions to run the installer.

Note: This installer will run just like the normal Chrome installer, regardless if you have an active internet connection or not.

Why you may want to use the Standalone Chrome Installer

There may be a few reasons why you might use the Google Chrome standalone installer, and some of them may be personal reasons or even troubleshooting steps from Google themselves.

For example, Google has recommended after some installation issues with the application, that using the standalone installer, which downloads the browser itself rather than the app that downloads it – can fix many installation issues you face with Chrome.

Another reason may be personal intranet use. For example, if your device which needs Chrome does not have an internet connection, without this installer you would not normally be allowed to download or use Chrome.

Without an internet connection, you wouldn’t be able to browse websites, but you can use on-network, or network-attached sites such as intranets, local printers an devices and more.

Are there any downsides to using Chrome’s Offline Installer

Not really! Using the Chrome offline and standalone installer won’t cause any issues, and if anything will often fix issues on devices such as installation errors, or application errors where you’re unable to use Chrome as intended.

When using Chrome’s offline installer, the file size will be slightly bigger – but not noticeable to most people.
