If you know your way around technology at least a little bit, then you most likely know this by now: any app or program runs better in 64-bit than in 32-bit. While 32-bit stuff has had a good run, and are by no means bad, it’s time to move along into the future. And it seems that Google plans to do just that with its signature browser, Google Chrome. Starting with Chrome 58, the browser will automatically migrate to 64-bit on devices running on Windows and at least 4GB of RAM.
That doesn’t seem half bad, considering how many improvements this change brings. And the best part about it is that you don’t have to wait for tedious updates to install or anything of the sort. The app will naturally migrate towards 64-bit without any extra hassle on your part. Pretty cool, huh? And the coolness doesn’t end here!
If you’ve already gotten your Chrome app running on 64-bit, then you might have noticed that notifications have changed. Action buttons will also change, as will image support. However, the biggest plus here is that animated PNG files are now supported natively. This will certainly improve user experience tremendously.
Google seem to be on a roll in 2017 as far as updates and new releases go. If there’s a company that seems to truly keep in touch with rapid technological advance, that’s Google, the Mountain View tech giant that took the world by storm. And we can’t wait to see what they bring out next. After all, everything they’ve been delivering lately has truly been of top notch quality.
