The above default release, 1.4, is the latest release of Java Plug-in. Sun recommends that you use it. However, if for some reason you need an older release, such as 1.3.0, 1.3.0_01, 1.3.0_02, or 1.3.1, they are available from the link below. Note that you should always download and use the corresponding version of the HTML Converter for any of the 1.3.0 releases of Java Plug-in. (In 1.4, the converter is included with the SDK 1.4 Standard Edition release.)

The last stable release of Chrome 44 would be 44.0.2403.157 for Windows, Mac, and Linux, as stated in this blog post: googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/2015/08/stable-channel-update_20.html. As Chrome is no longer availabe from any official sources, the alternative is to look for the last Chromium 44 release in the continuous builds archive.
Chrome 44 is much harder to locate than Chromium. One way is to search for googlechrome.dmg on the HD or in old backups and verify the version from the Info.plist, if you're using OS X.
File Hippo lists previous versions with the correct MD5 hashes, but always links to the latest official one. This information still helps, as the MD5 can be used to find out, if an unofficial source has the original file. Here is one such file with Chrome 44.0.2403.130 on SourceForge: sourceforge.net/projects/gnuhub/files/googlechrome.dmg/download - The MD5 is listed here filehippo.com/download_google_chrome_for_mac/tech/62573 2E0A856BF525D196323890D72A80E902 If you trust the source of the MD5 hash, then the file should be trustworthy, but Google does not publish the hashes of their releases. The same steps can be followed to locate a windows version of Chrome 44 by searching for chrome_installer.exe.

We know that to execute Selenium automation scripts on browsers like chrome or firefox, we must download the binary files of these drivers like chromedriver and geckodriver, etc. After this, we need to set the path to these binaries in the automation script or add the classpath location.
So if you want to execute Selenium WebDriver automation scripts on the Chrome browser, then you need first to download chromedriver.exe and then use the System.setProperty method to set its path as follows:
In a nutshell, this process of manually downloading the executables, setting their path in scripts, and then executing the scripts is time-consuming and inefficient. In the latest versions, Selenium provides us with a "WebDriverManager" class that automates this process for us to concentrate on Selenium scripts rather than on browser settings.
Note: We can also include WebDriverManager in Maven or Gradle project as a dependency. Then these IDEs download the latest version of WebDriverManager if it is not already present in the cache.
If your organization has a proxy server, you need to specify proxy server details like server name or IP address, username, and password to the WebDriverManager. Otherwise, it may raise/ cause errors like io.github.bonigarcia.wdm.WebDriverManagerException: java.net.UnknownHostException: chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com. 2b1af7f3a8
