If you run Google's Chrome browser then updates aren't really a thing you'll notice as they happen automatically. Chrome is always up-to-date. However, with the release of Chrome 58 this week, some Windows users are getting a much more significant update than usual. They are being migrated from 32-bit to 64-bit Chrome web browsing.
I say some users because there are a few prerequisites. First of all, you need to be already running a 32-bit version of the Chrome browser on 64-bit Windows. Your system also needs to have at least 4GB of RAM installed. Chances are, unless you own a very cheap Windows 10 laptop, if you're running 64-bit Windows 10 then there's 4GB or more of RAM complementing it.
If Google detects the combination detailed above, the version of Chrome 58 installed will default to the 64-bit version, replacing your existing 32-bit install. As to why Google is doing this, according to the Chrome Releases blog it's "in order to improve stability, performance, and security."
If, for some reason you don't want 64-bit Chrome, the 32-bit version will still be available to you via the Chrome download page. However, you're going to have to reinstall the browser. It's best to follow Google's advice here and make the switch to 64-bit, if for no other reason than the better security being offered.
With Chrome 58 out the door, Chrome 59 moves into beta. According to 9To5Google, Chrome 59 adds native notifications for macOS as well as native support for animated PNGs (APNGs). You can think of APNGs just like animated GIFs, but with support for 24-bit images and 8-bit transparency.Read More...
