Google Launches 64-Bit Version of Chrome Canary Browser for OS X [Mac Blog]

August 5, 2014 § Leave a comment

Following the launch of a 64-bit beta version of Chrome for Windows 7 and 8 users last week, Google has quietly added 64-bit support to Chrome Canary for OS X, the experimental build of its Chrome web browser designed for Mac users, and to its Mac Dev channels.

As noted by The Next Web, the latest build of Chrome Canary, version 38.2114.2, has 64-bit clearly listed in the About section of the browser, but Google has not yet officially announced the addition of 64-bit support.

According to Google, 64-bit support adds speed, allowing the browser to take advantage of the latest processor optimizations, and stability on Windows, with the same benefits likely available on the Mac.

64-bit support for the Windows version of Canary arrived in early June, before making its way to Beta channels in late July, and it’s possible 64-bit support for Mac could follow a similar timeline, eventually making its way to Google’s stable Chrome browser.
