Google Chrome is a web browser designed for simplicity and speed. Its minimalistic appearance and capabilities can be extended with themes and extensions. The program integrates with Google's tools and services and that can sync across other signed-in devices.

Cross-platform with clients available for Mac, Linux, Android and iOS.

Google Chrome Portable is the PortableApps version of the program. It includes automatic support for jPortable to enable web-based Java apps. For users interested in the cutting edge, Beta and Development are also available. For Windows versions from XP to 8, see past versions.

Runs on:Win10 / Win11 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. Uses Windows' certificate manager, some Settings/Extensions Locked Per PC (see "App Notes" on website).
Unicode support: Partial
Path portability: Automatic compensation for dynamic drive letter in removable storage devices
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the portable installer and install to a folder of your choice. Launch GoogleChromePortable.exe.

  • Some settings are tied to individual computers and are not portable, including certificates and passwords. See this thread for more information.
  • Optionally, to run in a more stealthy mode (that is not anonymous), start with --incognito to dismiss local history and cookies after program close.
Similar/alternative apps: X-Chromium, Slimjet

“Over the years [Chrome] has gained a reputation for being something of a resource hog, gobbling up your PC’s memory like it’s going out of style.” Starting with version 108, the Chrome desktop browser has a feature called Memory Saver that deactivates tabs that aren’t currently being used. When a user accesses a deactivated tab, it automatically reloads. A user can turn Memory Saver on or off. A user can also exclude specific sites from Memory Saver, keeping tabs for those sites active. See:

@JohnTHaller: Thank you for the new release. Regarding the registry entries that are left behind I will post in the forum.

There was a Crashpad issue causing the APPDATA directory to be left behind that was fixed in today's releases. I can't reproduce the others on any OS. Please post a complete bug report in the support forum here: We have hundreds of apps and bug reports as comments on another site often won't be seen and won't wind up being addressed, at least not in a timely manner.

Tested on Windows 10 64bit:
After closing Chrome and the platform 13.0 I found files in this folder:
C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data
AND in the registry I found settings in these keys:

Chrome still works on Windows XP (confirmed with 45.0.2454.101) but it will not work on an older processor lacking SSE2 support.

I don't think Chrome, portable or not, works on Windows XP any longer, I can never get it to work....

Sorry for my typo.
Last version before v40.0.2214.93 was v40.0.2214.91 (and not v40.0.2274.91)!
