Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

..It's easy to find the offline installer for windows machines: http://support.google.com/installer/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=126299

However I need to install Chrome on a Mac which has no connection to the Internet.

Can anyone help? It seems like this should be an easy one but I have been surprisingly unsuccessful!

Kind Regards, Luke

@MichaelHampton: If he's using Windows or Linux, he won't find the link anywhere on the Google Chrome website. For me, even the download links included in the Mac installation instructions point to the Linux download. –  PleaseStand Mar 1 '13 at 11:05

Just add ?platform=mac to the end of the Google Chrome download page's URL:

https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/?platform=mac

The download is in the form of a DMG file, a disk image containing the Google Chrome app. Installation (as with many Mac apps) merely consists of double-clicking the disk image to mount it and then dragging the app into the system's Applications folder.

Thanks @PleaseStand, it's pretty bizarre that Google hides this from Windows clients - much appreciated! –  Luke Egging Mar 1 '13 at 11:37
