I need to install chrome for a user who has 2 computers and only 500mb data allowance. Every link I try wants to install chrome on my computer. is it possible to manually download without installing?

I haven't tried it myself, but this seems to be what your looking for?

I tried the 'all-user' version.  Ignore the installer pop-up and the download link is on the main page.

Security risks etc, but if 30Mb per month is really a bigger concern then you may want to disable Chrome/Google automatic updates as well. This appears to be the official method: http://dev.chromium.org/administrators/turning-off-auto-updates
