Google has finally released a 64-bit version of its Chrome web browser. Also included in the latest release is improved font rendering, meaning that text appears much crisper, especially on high resolution displays.
They do make it a little tricky to upgrade to the 64-bit version though. It doesn't automatically upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit.
To do it, you need to re-install the browser, which is not as bad as it sounds. Here are the steps:
- Go to the Google Chrome download page for 64-bit Windows
- Download and do the install (pretty simple)
- Restart the browser after the install is complete
- After restarting, to verify that you are running the 64-bit version, click "About Google Chrome" in the main menu, and you should see the version number as "Version 37.0.2062.94 unknown-m (64-bit)"
