Download Chromium


You can test Chrome builds or Chromium builds. Chrome builds have the most infrastructure for analyzing crashes and reporting bugs. They also auto-update as new releases occur, which makes them a good choice for most uses. Chrome Canary is available for Windows and Mac and autoupdates daily. Other channels (dev and beta) are available.
Chromium builds do not auto-update, and do not have symbols. This makes them most useful for checking whether a claimed fix actually works. Use the following instructions to find builds:

Easy Point and Click for latest build:

Open up https://download-chromium.appspot.com

Easy Script to download and run latest Linux build:

Not-as-easy steps:

  1. Head to https://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/
  2. Choose your platform: Mac, Win, Linux, ChromiumOS
  3. Pick the Chromium build number you'd like to use
    1. The latest one is mentioned in the LAST_CHANGE file
  4. Download the zip file containing Chromium
  5. There is a binary executable within to run

Please file bugs as appropriate.


Downloading old builds of Chrome / Chromium

Let's say you want a build of Chrome 44 for debugging purposes. Google does not offer old builds as they do not have up-to-date security fixes.
However, you can get a build of Chromium 44.x which should mostly match the stable release.
  1. Look in https://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/search/label/Stable%20updates for the last time '44.' was mentioned.
  2. Loop up that version history ('44.0.2403.157') in the Position Lookup
  3. In this case it returns a base position of '330231'. This is the commit of where the 44 release was branched, back in May 2015.*
  4. Open the continuous builds archive
  5. Click through on your platform (Linux/Mac/Win)
  6. Paste '330231' into the filter field at the top and wait for all the results to XHR in.
  7. Eventually I get a perfect hit: https://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/index.html?prefix=Mac/330231/
    1. Sometimes you may have to decrement the commit number until you find one.
  8. Download and run!
* As this build was made at 44 branch point, it does not have any commits merged in while in beta.
Typically that's OK, but if you need a true build of '44.0.2403.x' then you'll need to build Chromium from the 2403 branch. Some PortableApps/PortableChromium sites offer binaries like this, due to security concerns, the Chrome team does not recommend running them.

Chromium open-source browser project containing the source code of many browsers such as Google Chrome, Opera and Brave Browser. It was released by Google at the same time as the Chrome browser. It is now managed by The Chromium Project, a community of developers that aims to create a fast, stable and safe form of web browsing. But things get tricky if you want a portable solution that works across multiple platforms. Just look at that hard-coded path to Chrome:(Using ChromeLauncher.

Description

Chrome is a fast, simple, and secure web browser, built for the modern web. Chrome is designed to be fast in every possible way. It's quick to start up from your desktop, loads web pages in a snap, and runs complex web applications lightning fast. Chrome's browser window is streamlined, clean and simple. For example, you can search and navigate from the same box and arrange tabs however you wish -- quickly and easily. Chrome is designed to keep you safer and more secure on the web with built-in malware and phishing protection, auto-updates to make sure you have all the latest security fixes, and more. Chrome puts you in control of your private information while helping protect the information you share when you're online. There are tons of ways to customize Chrome and make it yours. It's easy to tweak your settings and add apps, extensions, and themes from the Chrome Web Store. Signing in to Chrome brings your bookmarks, history, and other settings to all your computers. It also automatically signs you in to all your favorite Google services.

App Notes

Passwords Not Saved Between PCs By Default: Google Chrome stores passwords in such a way that they are encrypted in a way tied to current PC. While the passwords are not kept or left behind on the PC itself, they won't be retrievable when you move to a new PC. We've added password portability as an advanced option, though, which you can enable by reading the help.html file.

Certificates Not Portable: Google Chrome has no certificate manager. It uses Windows' certificates manager. So, any certificates you install through the Google Chrome interface are stored on the current local machine and will not travel with you. Thus, you should not use any private certificates with Google Chrome except on your own PC.

Some Settings/Extensions Locked Per PC: Google Chrome locks specific settings to a given PC. Details are included in this post. This behavior is by design by the Chrome team. If you would like this changed, please file a bug with the Chrome team. A suggested workaround is to sign in to Google to restore all settings and extensions and to use an extension such as Session Buddy to maintain your session state as you move PCs. Note that PortableApps.com has not evaluated this extension.

Note that other portable browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition do not have any of the issues mentioned above. These issues are specific to Chrome due to Chrome's design and not something we can work around without fixes to the base app by the Chrome developers.
