Thought this was cool:  Chrome v22 direct offline standalone installer download
For example, I want to download version 22.0.1229.2
Old URL, no longer works
Fuck Google’s bootstrappers downloader which is slow like shit. And the official standalone installer failed to install on Windows XP. WTF.
btw to check the newest Chrome version, use this page http://feeds.feedburner.com/GoogleChromeReleases
