Solution: Standalone Google Chrome Installer for non SSE

January 30, 2015 at 11:33:15
Specs: Windows XP, Pentium M 1.3/2GB
UPDATE: I have located a copy of standalone Google Chrome 33 which is the last version of the browser that does not prompt to upgrade hardware because the hardware is no longer supported.

This will run on older processors like the Pentium III and AMD socket processors without SSE2.

It was released on November 6, 2013 and is digitally signed by Google.

I found it on Sante Fe College's directory, and determined the correct version by searching for a digitally signed copy from November 6 2013 which is the date that Chrome 33 was officially released.

Direct link:

If that link goes down in the future you can get it from my FTP. It runs on XP SP2 and SP3 so I have copied it to both locations: or

Also grab the updated PepperFlash Flash Player from my FTP and copy it to the C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\33.0.1701.0\PepperFlash folder, overwriting the old version! I regularly upload the current versions to my FTP. As of this writing version is the current version. PepperFlash is the customized version of Flash Player built into Chrome. So at least with Chrome 33, Flash 16 and maybe an antivirus you'll be somewhat up to date. The standalone versions of Chrome are unable to update by themselves and you don't want to be running outdated Flash.

I'd rather keep my hardware up to date so I can also keep Google up to date. Applies equally to other software too, as well as the OS itself.

Stuff messing about with old versions, no thanks.

I was simply posting it because there has been a bit of discontent with Google dropping support for older hardware.

The fact that they "support XP" is a little misleading because they only support it on Pentium 4 or later. That leaves out a huge chunk of XP capable hardware.

If you look at Microsoft's software, newer software like IE8 and Media Player 11 still run on XP's original requirements, a Pentium 233MHz.

Some want to run Windows 7, others want to run Windows 98, etc. I try to be a problem solver, regardless of the problem.
