Google Chrome installation

rpvr, Aug 6, 10:50am
When one downloads the stand alone installation package of Chrome, 3 files are received. Apart from the main installation file there are two others called EndPointVerification and LegacyBrowserSupport. I assume it is advisable to install all of these?

Depends how much you need to rely on the evil Google company.

I guess my question is, what do they actually do?

They're meant for use in a corporate environment. If you don't know why they do you don't need them.

Dunno what you're looking at or where you got it but when I just tested downloading the offline chrome installer it downloads as ONE .exe file.

I got; ChromeStandaloneSetup64.exe file size 49.8MB

That is the main file I got, so the others are obviously add-ons of some kind and can be ignored.

But as I'm saying I didn't get those files - so how come you did ?
Where did you get that install file from ?

Well that explains it. See post #4.

You've downloaded a version meant for companies.

Why evil? Google are very clear in their Ts and Cs about what info they collect and what they do with it.

All the free services they offer in return for a bit of info so they can target ads seems like a good trade-off. all those monthly subscriptions would really add up otherwise.

Evil ?
Rofl.

They don't seem so evil when I'm getting my referral fee.

They censor conservatives.

They also breed dragons that control the population from above.

See, most things without a source can be made up.

Don't tell him stuff like that.
He's a creationist, he'll believe anything.

r.g.nixon, Aug 8, 8:18pm
YES, I've long suspected that! Thanks for your timely advice!

Hahah. I guess Dragons would be pretty awesome. Or deadly. Or something.

nice_lady, Aug 8, 8:27pm
Great story - even has dragons!

I'm a reptile enthusiast. Where can I get one of those dragons? Or preferably a pair?
