Google Chrome To Ditch The 32 Bit Builds For MacWhile Windows releases only recently got the 64 bit compatibilty.

If you are up for some celebration then here it is: according to Googe, the search giant will stop releasing 32 bit versions of Chrome for Mac as early as November.

What does that mean? It means that if you are still rocking a pretty old Intel hardware then it‘s either time to upgrade or miss out the future builds (39 and later). In addition to that, it also allows Google to ditch legacy versions, which is always a good sign.

We welcome this change.

    Despite the wording from the Chromium blog, this actually affects no current Chrome Mac users. Since Chrome 35, Chrome for Mac already requires 64-bit Macs, so any existing Chrome for Mac users by definition already uses a compatible computer.
