Update Google Chrome Without Using Online Installer

Hello
I wanted to download Google Chrome online without installing it, and finally, I was able to find the direct link and download it ( Here --> https://portableapps.com/node/65061 )

Now I had a question to make Google Chrome portable, I replaced this new installation folder (App\Chrome-bin\103.0.5060.53 ) with the old one( App\Chrome-bin\95.0 ) in its folder and it is working without any problems..

.Do you think this method is really a good method in the future or not?
I don't know if in the future I face any problems or not .. but for now, it seems everything working fine.

Thanks

Unsupported

As described in the linked post, you can open each installer in 7-Zip to open up the install.ini to find the installer it needs and place it alongside the online installer. When you then run the installer, it will use that copy rather than downloading it as part of the process. This allows you to move it to a computer without internet access or that is blocked from downloading from Google to install.

You may be able to manually extract both the paf.exe installer and then the Chrome installer and get it working. This is not supported, of course, as you're bypassing all the installer logic to handle upgrades.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
