We hope you Mac users are ready for some 64-bit software computations from Google! Google Chrome version 39 has released today, with the new update including a number of large features for desktop users across all major platforms. Mac OSX users will now have browser support for 64-bit, with Google Chrome now completely shifting to a 64-bit only variant on OSX.
On top of this, the 64-bit support includes a number of handy security and speed updates to the browser, with improved instruction sets, more registers and improved efficiency in function calling. Because most software already on the OSX platform is now already all 64-bit based, you should find that Chrome now boots faster on a Mac. Desktop users on Linux, Windows and OSX can download the new Google Chrome update through the browser’s built-in silent updater, or can head over to google.com/chrome to manually download the latest version. For a full list of updates that come apart of the Google Chrome 39, please see the full release available on Google’s update blog for the browser here.
