But it's showing that the current version is not compatible with my old MacBook Pro
Only by updating the operating system, will newer versions of chrome become compatible. However I don't reccomend you use chrome anyway the newer versions hog resources terribly and lower battery life by as much as 50% according to some reports.

That'd mean you're on a old as heck version of OS X. You should update it for security reasons, let alone being compatible with crappy, ressource hogging, battery-killing chrome.

The MacBook Pro 1,1 (Original) is a 32-bit system. So Snow Leopard is the last supported version of OS X, and while Google Chrome still supports Snow Leopard, it moved to 64-bit only a little while back.

You can probably find a download of Chrome 38 out there via old apps or something and run that. Just know that it won't be up to date and may have some security vulnerabilities. But then again, so does Snow Leopard. Firefox is still being updated however.
