Download Chromium

You can test Chrome builds or Chromium builds. Chrome builds have the most infrastructure for analyzing crashes and reporting bugs. They also auto-update as new releases occur, which makes them a good choice for most uses. Chrome Canary is available for Windows and Mac and autoupdates daily. Other channels (Dev and Beta) are available.

Chrome for Testing builds and Chromium builds do not auto-update, and do not have symbols. This makes them most useful for checking whether a claimed fix actually works. Use the following instructions to find builds.

Chrome for Testing

Chrome for Testing is a dedicated flavor of Chrome targeting the testing use case, without auto-update, integrated into the Chrome release process, made available for every Chrome release across all channels (Stable/Beta/Dev/Canary).

The easiest way to download Chrome for Testing binaries for your platform is by using the @puppeteer/browsers command-line utility, available via npm. Here are some examples:

# Download the latest available Chrome for Testing binary corresponding to the Stable channel.
npx @puppeteer/browsers install chrome@stable

# Download a specific Chrome for Testing version.
npx @puppeteer/browsers install chrome@116.0.5793.0

# Download the latest available ChromeDriver version corresponding to the Canary channel.
npx @puppeteer/browsers install chromedriver@canary

# Download a specific ChromeDriver version.
npx @puppeteer/browsers install chromedriver@116.0.5793.0

If you prefer to build your own automated scripts for downloading these binaries, refer to the JSON API endpoints with the latest available versions per Chrome release channel (Stable, Beta, Dev, Canary).

To get a quick overview of the latest status, consult the Chrome for Testing availability dashboard.


In contrast to Chrome for Testing builds, Chromium builds are made available on a best-effort basis, and are built from arbitrary revisions that don’t necessarily map to user-facing Chrome releases.

Downloading old builds of Chrome / Chromium

Let's say you want a build of Chrome 44 for debugging purposes. Google does not offer old builds as they do not have up-to-date security fixes.

However, you can get a build of Chromium 44.x which should mostly match the stable release.

Here's how you find it:

  1. Look in updates for the last time "44." was mentioned.
  2. Loop up that version history ("44.0.2403.157") in the Position Lookup
  3. In this case it returns a base position of "330231". This is the commit of where the 44 release was branched, back in May 2015.*
  4. Open the continuous builds archive
  5. Click through on your platform (Linux/Mac/Win)
  6. Paste "330231" into the filter field at the top and wait for all the results to XHR in.
  7. Eventually I get a perfect hit:
    1. Sometimes you may have to decrement the commit number until you find one.
  8. Download and run!

* As this build was made at 44 branch point, it does not have any commits merged in while in beta.

Typically that's OK, but if you need a true build of "44.0.2403.x" then you'll need to build Chromium from the 2403 branch. Some PortableApps/PortableChromium sites offer binaries like this, due to security concerns, the Chrome team does not recommend running them.
