Google Outs A Beta Edition Of Its 64-bit Chrome Browser For Windows

Going into beta testing stage signifies that a truly stable 64-bit browser could be just weeks away.

 

Internet search giant Google has just rolled out a beta version of its 64-bit Chrome browser for Windows 7 and Windows 8 PCs. The Canary and developer editions have been out there for some time now, but a beta version signals that a truly stable version of the 64-bit browser is just weeks away.

The beefed-up browser makes use of modern computing power to speed up web page rendering and also improve security. While anyone can download the 64-bit Chrome beta, users should be weary that the code isn't complete yet and there is potential for running into a few hiccups here and there.

The reactions from a few early users is mixed at the moment, with a few stating they haven't noticed any improvement in performance, but admit it's probably because they don't have too many tabs open at once. Another user notes that the problem of tab freezing is gone, but memory usage per tab has gone up.
