Chrome 64-bit is faster and more secure

Chrome 64-bit is faster and more secure

Google’s Chrome browser is already quick but is about to get quicker with 64-bit support. Google claims it is seeing a 25% average increase in performance.

Security will be tougher with a 64-bit version of Chrome too. Without getting too nerdy, 64-bit software allows more memory randomization, making it harder for hackers to steal information from your RAM.

If that’s not enough to get you excited, 64-bit Chrome claims to crash half as much as the current 32-bit version.

If you’re brave, you can install an experimental version of 64-bit Chrome from the Canary and Dev Channels below. The browser is currently only available on Windows 7 and Windows 8. Since the browser is still experimental, expect to see some bugs.
