Download Portable Google Chrome

Download Portable Google ChromeGoogle Chrome Portable version is released by a German blogger Caschy, you can download the Portable Google Chrome from his blog, blog is in German, look for a link at the bottom of the post.

This is not truly a portable version, there is no installation in USB device, just download the archive file and extract it to your USB stick, open the folder Portable_chrome and click the “ChromeLoader” to use the browser.

I have tested this on Windows Vista SP1 system, it is working fine. The author tested it on Windows Vista SP1 and Windows XP SP3 and seems to be working well.

    Well if it works well, then why not. It will make distributing it much easier because you can install it for someone who doesn’t have internet connection currently.

    Portable chrome does not work on W2K.
    It is portable only in the sense that you are able to take it along the way on your USB stick.

    As long as I am forced to run Chrome on a currently supported MS OS I dont see any good in this browser.

    Does it support auto-update? Of is that feature broken by making it portable?
    I don’t see the point in using a ‘fake’ USB portable app that is still in beta stage.
    Guest, Chrome will be released for Windows, Mac and Linux.
    And Goran, what’s the point in installing a browser for someone who doesn’t have internet access?

  1. […] Why is Google Chrome browser not compatible with Windows 2000? Lots of people still have Windows 2000. Some people have Windows XP or Vista at home, at work it is Windows 2000, – corporate users are much more conservative. Some people use Windows 2000 because they don’t like the look of Windows XP. they prefer the classic Windows Logo, and the classic theme. Why is Windows 2000 not supported? I think perhaps because: Today is 2008. Windows 2000 Server’s mainstream support ended June 30, 2005. While extended support will be available until July 13, 2010. We are already going from Windows XP sp3 to Vista, and the next OS is being designed. Update: On the comment #1, the webmaster of surfchrome.com said that’s less than 1%(0.72%) of visitors used Windows 2000 to visit his site last month. I just checked last month stats of ChromeFans, only 0.45% used Windows 2000: Windows XP: 62.54% Windows Vista: 21.95% Mac OS : 1.63% Windows 2003: 1.05% Windows 2000: 0.45% If you want to download Google Chrome on Windows 2000, there is an article from NSpeaks: Google Chrome on Windows 2000/2k?
