Google has begun work on a 64-bit version of Chrome for Linux

Post by tysonbb85 on Fri Aug 21, 2009 11:58 am



Google has begun work on a 64-bit version of Chrome for Linux, a move likely to whip Linux loyalists into a lather of excitement.
In 64-bit versions, programs can take advantage of larger amounts of memory, performance can benefit from extra storage spaces called registers on processors, and some mathematically intense computing tasks can run faster. But along with issues such as broken plug-ins, 64-bit software can hog more disk space, complicate programmers' testing and support chores, and often doesn't really run appreciably faster, so the transition isn't necessarily a top priority.

Too bad Google Chrome isn't really popular on 32bit Windows, what makes Google think it will be popular 64bit linux?

Google are just being mean now, If they hated mS so much they would not even release chrome.
