What is a safe, reputable location to download an older version of Chrome? I have a customer that is having issues with an application that is having issues with the latest release (67.0.3396.99). Would Chromium do the trick? I'm not familiar with it.

 

Thank you.

I don't know of a way to download verified Chrome installs. but Chromium build packages are here.

They are cataloged in build number, not by date. But it's all there.

Here you go. But, I believe Chrome will update to the latest version once online unless you go through some hacks. Older versions have security vulnerabilities fixed in the later versions.

Like JohnC_21 shows, the link to SlimJet makes available some older versions of SlimJet browser which is very much like Google Chrome.  I still have version 11 on my Windows Vista machine.  Note, that that version, although it does work, does not do so perfectly.

 

Consider a different kind of alternative  (for Vista and later), such as  Pale Moon browser which is like some older versions of Firefox.

both sites that have provided have correct previous versions.
Once you get the version that starts on the computer, it disables Chrome updates.
 

first option

  • msconfig
  • services
  • hide all Microsoft services
  • uncheck google services apply and restart.
 

second option

  • services.msc
  • google update services
  • properties / disable
  • to accept
 
three option:
1. Disable Chrome automatic updates using the local group policy editor
With this method you will have to download the Google Update template from this link ; specifically, the ADM version. You can also download it directly from here . Easy, it's safe. We will use it to deactivate Chrome's auto-update process . It is important to note that some versions of Windows do not incorporate the local group policy editor, so if it is not present in your system, you should try another method of this article. We go there with the steps.
 
Open the Run option by pressing the "Windows key + R" on your keyboard. Type "gpedit.msc" , without quotes, and press Enter
 
  • We are already in the local group policy editor. On the left, select "Administrative Templates" and then "Add / Remove Templates (Add / Remove Templates)" .
  • A window will open. Here, you must click on "Add (Add)" .
  • You will see a list with all the templates. Select the Google Update template that you have previously downloaded. Add it and click on "Close" .
  • In the panel on the left of the local policy editor, you should go to the path:  Computer Configuration => Administrative Templates => Classic Administrative Templates (ADM) => Google => Google Update => Applications => Google Chrome . Here, double-click on "Updated Policy Override . "
  • This will take you to the configuration page. Activate the service by clicking "Enabled" . Now, in the "Policy" menu , select the option you prefer. If you want to deactivate all the automatic updates but activate the manuals, select "Manual updates only" , but, to deactivate them all, select "Updates disabled" .
  • The next time you restart your PC, the Google update service will be disabled. If you want to undo the changes, select the option to allow all updates.
 
2. Disable Chrome updates through system settings
With this method, we will disable the service that Google uses to find Chrome updates . Once the service is disabled, Chrome should not automatically update unless you re-enable the service. These are the steps to follow.
 
Press the "Windows key + R" to open the window to run applications. Type "msconfig" and press Enter. The system configuration window will open.
 
Go to "Services" and look for the following services:
 
  • Google Update service
  • Google Update service (gupdate)
  • Google Update service (gupdatem)
  • You may not find all the services, so disable the previous Google services that appear in the list. To find them easily, you can order them pro manufacturer. Deselect them and click on "OK" to save the configuration.
 
A confirmation window may appear telling you to reboot the computer to apply the changes. Click on accept or restart it later; as you prefer. Changes will be applied when you reboot the system.

Was just searching around and found this, thanks so much for the info.  Can you do this with Firefox as well? I have both on my PC, ever since Firefox updated to a newer version, I hate it, and it kept updating it automatically.

I would not recommend it as you would lose security updates. There is the ESR version 52 that is supported with security updates but that will be entering end of life very soon.
