When I opened Facebook earlier, I saw that I needed to update my Chrome browser because of security stuff. I am on Windows 7 32-bit with 1 GB of RAM (yes, 1 GB)

When I went to the Chrome page, the only Windows installer is a 64-bit one. Where can I find a 32-bit installer. Can somebody tell me where it is?

  • Even more obnoxious is that you can't seem to download a package for a completely different OS from that page either. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Nov 4 '17 at 9:35

  • You shouldn't use Chrome on a PC with less RAM. Firefox and Vivaldi are much less memory hungry @UğurGümüşhan the OP is using Windows – phuclv Nov 4 '17 at 12:00

Turns out that you need to force the page to the proper OS using the platform key in the query string.

The enterprise page has 32 bit MSI downloads for the latest version:

32 Bit Browsers are losing support more and more, so its very possible that product is no longer available. I know from the Mac side that Google is no longer supporting 32 bit chrome.

And for everyone freaking out bout you running 1GB of ram, its a 32 bit machine, its the same thing as running about 6GB of ram on a 64 bit machine. Not great, but do-able.

Try running another browser that is still being supported. You'll find that browsers that are unsupported, will not be allowed to view your bank info. Here is a list of browsers you can search for... Win XP 32 bit or above- advanced chrome 54.15.5320.0 Firefox ESR 52.3.0 , commode ice Drago 52.0.0.4, cyber fox 52.2.1, k-meleon 75.1, sea monkey 2.48, or check Goanna-based NewMoon, Chromium. browsers, and webkit based non chromium like Midori 0.5.1.1 or presto based Opera 12.18, QT based Double 1.56d, Otter Browser XP. Finally, and in all seriousness, take this as a warning, your hardware is getting SERIOUSLY outdated and its way passed time to upgrade to 64 bit hardware. You can find great deals on ebay and are fully protected if you follow PayPal ebay rules.

Chrome no longer supports 32 Bit operating systems - this is True not only for Windows, but also for OSX and Linux.

The last Chrome Version for 32 Bit Windows is no longer safe to run.
