Chrome 64 Bit

Quote:

Google today released a 64-bit stable version of its Chrome browser for
Windows systems. The 64-bit support has been in testing since June, and as of
Chrome version 37 it has made it to the mainstream version.

The 64-bit version offers three main advantages and one possible drawback.
The browser's advantages are speed, security, and stability. Google claims
that certain media and graphics workloads in particular are faster with 64-bit.
It offers the example of VP9 video decodingóused for some YouTube
high-definition streamsóbeing 15 percent quicker compared to 32-bit.

I was wondering about this the other day.

The drawback they mentioned for convenience:

Quote:
Yet the 64-bit browser is missing one feature found in the 32-bit browser: support for the NPAPI plugin API. This means that some browser plugins (including both Silverlight and Java) will not work. Google intends to remove 32-bit NPAPI support at some point in the future, so this gap will not be permanent.

That's always been the point of a 64 bit version to be safer without plugins,
As time goes on there will be no safe version if Oracle makes a 64 bit version.
Just something else they won't patch the security flaws on,
Cheers.

Agreed with thrashzone.
I see that as an opposite of a drawback.

Security issues caused by those programs are now (for the most part) gone.

I have installed it and all my extensions work fine, very fast and stable.
But I went back to my chrome-ish version
