Google Releases 64-bit Version of Chrome

Category: Software
Posted: 03:32PM

Google has just released a stable build of Chrome 37, which is now available in a 64-bit version for Windows. The 64-bit version of Chrome offers plenty of enhancements over the 32-bit version, such as a 15 percent improvement in decoding performance when using the VP9 codec, as well as greater engine stability when handling typical web content. Security is also improved, as the 64-bit version of Chrome is more effective at defending against vulnerabilities that rely on controlling the memory layout of objects.

The 64-bit version of Chrome 37 is only available through a new download link on the Chrome download page, with the only known issue being that it lacks 32-bit NPAPI plugin support.

Anyone know what the ramifications of lack of "32-bit NPAPI plugin support" are?

It means certain plugins won't work; so check ahead of time to make sure your favorite plugins are supported before making the switch. It's basically what I do whenever a new version of Firefox is released too.
