The 64-bit version of Google Chrome for Windows has been out for some time, and now, the company announced the 64-bit version of the popular operating system for Mac will come out in November.
Google further announced when the Google Chrome 64-tbit version for Mac is official, the 32-bit one will be discontinued for good.
In late August we released Chrome 64-bit for Windows, which brought benefits in speed, security and stability. We’re now bringing these benefits to OS X with Chrome 64-bit for Mac, version 39, due to be released in Nov 2014. Unlike on Windows, where Chrome is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit, on Mac, Chrome will only be available in 64-bit with version 39 and after. As a result, 32-bit NPAPI plugins will not work on Chrome on Mac version 39 onwards.
Well, the 64-bit versions are said to perform better compared to 32-bit, and dropping the 32-bit completely for Mac shouldn’t be an issue since most of the Macs will be able to run the latest version of the browser.
The exact availability date is not available, but you get the time frame, its November. Do you use Google Chrome on your Mac or your choice of browser is different?
