As promised in September, Google has launched the 64-bit Google Chrome browser for Mac. Google has also said that 32-bit extensions and applications will have to migrate to 64-bit, as this update has left them without support.
The update also fixes more than 40 security bugs and adds new APIs for Chrome extension developers. The browser uses a silent update mechanism that will automatically download and install the latest update.
To see which version of Google Chrome you have, simply open this browser, open the Chrome menu at the top left, and click on the Google Chrome Info option. A new browser window will open with this information. If you are not updated, you can do it from that same window.
Now that Google Chrome has been upgraded to 64-bit it will run much faster and this may cause many users to migrate to this browser on their Mac. In addition, integration with Google services may be a key point for this change.
