Note About Installing Google Chrome

If you want to install Google Chrome, we strongly recommend that you download it only from http://www.google.com/chrome. Downloading Google Chrome from other links could result in limited functionality, including the inability to create application shortcuts and to get any updates, including security fixes, for Google Chrome

Because you are getting an old version that an updater will not see since the version is old (you just have to manually update)

Another thing if downloading from ANY other site you run the risk of having the browser+virus or trojan... worse yet it could be packaged and set to automatically send your info to their server (browsing, logins, banking)
