Google Chrome : Now with 64-bit version

Finally Google has released a stable 64-bit version of Chrome for Windows.

According to Google, 64-bit Chrome for Windows has three major advantages over its 32-bit cousin:

  • It’s faster,
  • more secure,
  • more stable.


Even the tasks like HD video on YouTube, are 15% faster under the 64-bit version of Chrome. the most major plug-ins, including Silverlight, Java, and Flash have all been updated to 64-bit. That’s a small price to pay for increased speed, security, and (according to Google) twice the stability of 32-bit Chrome, though.

Three months of testing later, and the 64-bit build of Chrome has passed muster and percolated down to the latest stable version: Chrome 37.

According to Google, 64 bits Chrome will provide a marked improvement in rendering speed and Google also says it sees an average improvement of 25% in graphics and multimedia content. The main focused advantage is VP9 video decoding (i.e. surfing YouTube) is 15% faster. It suspects the 64-bit version of Chrome will feel a bit faster in everyday use.

The concern to security and stability are much less nebulous but Moving to a 64-bit process allows Chrome to use features such as High Entropy ASLR (address space layout randomization) and improve defenses against JIT spraying
