64 Bit Google Chrome (x86-64)

64 Bit Google Chrome (x86-64)

It looks like the 64 bit version of Google Chrome web browser might be coming in the near future as AreWeFastYet.com now lists both OS versions:

64 Bit Google Chrome (x86-64)

Mac OS X, 32-bit
Mac OS X, 64-bit

However, don’t get too excited yet. When comparing benchmark results, 64 bit version actually scored much less than the 32 bit version: 5600 points vs. 6700 points (V8 benchmark).

Judging from test results, 64 build still has a long way to go.

Thanks, Blake!

    I always get excited before you tell your readers not to get excited. This needs to stop, Vygantas! Also, didn’t the 64 bit version of Firefox score better than its 32 bit counterpart? Or was that Opera? You did an article on it a while back!
