A browser is one of the most resource-intensive things you can run on a computer. Start a multi-tab workload and it's not uncommon to quickly gobble up multiple gigabytes of RAM. To help deal with the Web's ever-growing thirst for system resources, Google is catching up with the Internet Explorers and Safaris of the world by releasing a 64-bit version of Chrome.

The new version was announced on the Chromium blog, along with a list of benefits that the switch to 64-bit brings to the table. Thanks to compiler optimizations and a more advanced instruction set, Google says it is getting big speed boosts. In graphics and multimedia content, the 64-bit version of Chrome is averaging a 25 percent improvement in performance. Security is better, too, thanks to high-entropy address space layout randomization in Windows 8, making memory hacks harder. Google also notes that it has seen "a marked increase in stability for 64-bit Chrome over 32-bit Chrome," particularly in the render process, which crashes half as much on 64-bit builds.

For now, the 64-bit version of Chrome is only available on Windows 7 and 8, and only in the developer and canary (nightly) channels.
 
Seems faster although people think putting 93 in their car that takes regular makes it faster, I feel that maybe this is the same thing.
 
I'm assuming the current add-ins aren't compatible with the 64-bit version.
 
This is good news.

Not so much the ability to use more memory since Chrome starts new processes for each tab the 2GB limit for 32bit programs isn't really an issue, but increased security and possible performance increases.

But I can wait a couple months for this to come to the stable channel.

Depends if the car is designed for. While not all cars "require" 91/93. Some cars will alter timing for longer stroke and more detonation with the higher octane and increase power, and fuel economy.

And not all cars are set up this way. But your statement is invalid.
 
Thanks for the heads up. :up:

Only weird thing I have noticed so far is that the tabs at the top have less border to the top of the monitor.

Yah, I noticed that as well.

Also it's running a new version of flash in the plugins, r14 rather than r13.

I said cars that are made to take regular. If the car was built for regular gas, putting 93 in will do nothing. How many cars are programmed to recognize that a higher octane fuel is present and adjust timing accordingly? Please enlighten me.

More than you think.

It still looks a pixel or two off, but the rounded corners help :D

Switching between my 32 bit version and 64 bit version, they look exactly the same to me. :yep:

Regardless, I'm using the 64-bit version as my main browser at home now. I can't really tell any differences (apart from the icon). Speedwise, I've got all SSD's in my computer so I can't really tell fractions of seconds from one to the other.
 
a heads up: battfield browser plugin wont work with 64bit. reverting back to 32bit will keep it broken too.
