Where to download Chrome 32 bit since it has been discontinued by Google?

Many users have been looking for the last 32 bit build of Google Chrome browser. It is version 48. It came as part of Ubuntu Mate 15.10 recommended software from the Welcome Center. Below is a link where you can still find it.


I am using Chromium, which is still being updated and is at version 49 currently. However, Chromium does not support the Adobe Flash Player and Google Chrome does. So that is one reason a lot of folks like it.

If you are looking for the open source Google Chrome equivalent called Chromium, in both 32 and 64 bit versions, they are available still. You can also find the Chrome "Canary" developer beta builds in both 32 and 64 bit versions for Windows and Linux there. You can find them below. Enjoy.


And to install Chrome 64-Bit  via PPA try the following:

1. We use Google’s official Linux software repository (PPA) that will automatically install and configure settings needed to keep your chrome browser up-to-date.

Before installing repository, we need to download and install Google’s Linux package signing Key that will automatically configure your package manager to verify the integrity of packages before downloading and installing on the system.
On an Debian based systems (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc.), use the following command to download the key and then use ‘apt-key‘ to add it to the system.

$ wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -

After adding the key, run the following command to add chrome repository to your system sources.

$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'

After adding chrome repository, you must do a system update to update the newly added chrome repository, using the following command.

$ sudo apt-get update

4. Now, here Google PPA provides three chrome versions (stable, beta and unstable), so install whatever version you prefer.
Install Chrome Stable Version
$ sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

Installing Google Chrome Browser Using .Deb Package

1. Go to Google Chrome download page and select your package or you can use following ‘wget‘ command to download and install the latest version.

Note: Google Chrome ends support for all 32-bit Linux distributions from March, 2016.

$ wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb $ sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb 

2. Once it’s installed, launch Google Chrome Browser with normal user.

$ google-chrome-stable
