Where to Download Offline Installers for Firefox and Chrome

Chrome and Firefox logos

Normally Chrome and Firefox download a small online installer and when it's run, it downloads the rest of the program. Here's how to download the complete program with all the setup files.

While many programs and most browsers these days provide a small online installer that downloads the rest of the program, there are times when downloading the full program is a better option. Slow connections, limited or metered bandwidth, no internet connection, needing to install a browser on more than one computer or reinstall a browser if issues crop up are reasons to download a standalone/offline installer.

A standalone (or offline) installer has all the files to install and run the program, no additional downloads are required.

Here are the links to the offline installers for Firefox and Chrome. They should be up to date, but if not or you have trouble with the links, you can get Chrome (enterprise, Windows 32 and 64 bit and Mac OS X) here, the current Windows version here, and Firefox (Windows 32 and 64 bit, Mac OS, Linux 32 and 64 bit) here.

at rhiannon,
Thanks for the Chrome info.
Firefox is pulling off of the https://ftp.mozilla.org/ website.
Anything made by Mozilla, from the first version to the latest version, all flavors (Win, Linux, Mac, x32 and x64) all the Languages, offline and online (stub) installers. Most of the (older) versions have a 2015 date as a " last date modified" but I think that's when they were added to the FTP list and version 42 on up have the Public Release Date as the last modified date.
Hope that made sense.

thanks again,
michael

I hadn't heard they were making any changes to the ftp site, thanks for mentioning it.
