chrome-mac-64-bit-dev-channel

Google recently released a 64-bit version beta version of Chrome for Windows 7 and 8 users and for an encore the company has turned its efforts towards Apple’s OS X. The search giant has silently added 64-bit support to its Chrome Canary and Dev channels for Mac users. If you’re running the latest version of Canary on your Mac, the software should read as 64-bit capable in its About tab.

Now, before you rush to take advantage of this new 64-bit goodness, please be advised that Canary and Dev releases are not final builds of Google’s web browser, so expect to encounter a bug or two along the way. This update comes about two months after Google’s 64-bit push for its Windows Canary and Dev channels, so the company appears to be taking a no platform left behind approach.
