So, if you don't want google updater installed, and just want to play with the browser, you can download it from

http://cache.pack.google.com/chrome/install/149.27/chrome_installer.exe

Please PM me if this link doesn't work and I'll update it.

I figured it out by using a packet tracer and then running their installer, and watching for http connections.

There was a bunch of redirects (load balancing I'm guessing) before finally the file itself was downloaded.

There's plenty of sites out there offering links to apparently this file, but from those file hosting sites where you have to wait in queues, and then you can't be sure what your getting is legit. If your getting it directly from google, you know there's nothing dodgy in it (except, perhaps, for their own "find everything out about everyone that we can" stuff :P).

Note: it won't install the google updater, which means you won't be notified of updates.

This installer won't show any progress, and will only show a window when the install is complete.

Also, there's a good chance that link will die once a new version comes out. I will occasionally check for updates and provide a new link in the OP when this happens.
