New In This Release

It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.


Google Chrome Portable is available for immediate download from the Google Chrome Portable homepage. The Development build is available from the test section. Get it today!

That was fast!

*taking the new version for a ride*

Sometimes making love is just not enough, you have to step it up!


I get many (All) languages here and manually delete them after every update, is this a bug in the installer or is it by design ?

this should be fixed in the next platform beta 6, right ?

Sometimes making love is just not enough, you have to step it up!

An older version of the installer had a similar bug and I thought this was fixed in the latest version. Maybe its because its an online installer?

These are source files for the installer and this behavior is by design. If you do not wish to have source files at all (they are not required for Google Chrome Portable to function) you can just delete the Other\Source folder after any install or upgrade.
