I think you are referring to installing Google Chrome using the native web installer and using the offline or standalone installer. These are actually different kinds of installer but the same version of Google Chrome. They only differ in the manner the web browser is installed. In a web installer or doing the web installation, the web browser is installed directly from the server and you must be online while the installation is happening.

In this method, the Google Chrome installer is downloaded into your computer and installed automatically once the download is complete. The actual installer used for the web browser will not be available to you and will be deleted after the installation. This method requires internet connection. In a standalone or offline installer, no internet connection is required.

Here, you only need to download the full installer and save it on your hard drive. Once the setup file is already in your computer, you can run the installer anytime even without internet connection. To download the latest version, visit Google Chrome for Linux.
