Google Chrome is undoubtedly the fastest browser today.It is also the most popular browser today. (At least my blog’s visitor’s statistics say so)
Most people download Google Chrome via a Web Installer which later downloads the Google Chrome setup files on your computer.
Google Chrome browser also updates itself automatically whenever updates are available, so you have the latest version running.But what about those people who have very limited downloading limits or very slow browsing speeds on their Internet connections.
The answer is to download the Standalone version of Google Chrome.You can download the latest version from some other computer (maybe one of you friend’s computer) and use it to install Google Chrome on your computer.
After installing Google Chrome, you can later disable its automatic update feature.
