Hello,
I have just installed newest google Chrome version on Win 7 prof 64 bit. Task Manager shows me that chrome is running in 32 bit mode.
==> chrome.exe *32

I can't find a clear stated Chrome download for 64 Bit OS's.
Question: Is Chrome V.9 built for 64 Bit OS? If yes where can I get it? Or how to switch the installed version to 64 Bit version?

Thanks for answering.

You can't.

64bit chrome is not available for Windows.

Thanks for answering. I wonder when it will be available? Any ideas?

Don't know. The browser makers don't seem to be in any hurry to release 64 bit versions because the 32 bit versions work fine.

The availability of 64bit plugins like flash probably has something to do with it as well.

Problem is that plugin makers are in no hurry either because they don't see the point of releasing 64 bit plugins if not many people use 64 bit browsers.

The critical 64-bit plugins are now available:

Java 64-bit has been available for a long time.
Adobe were the only ones dragging the chain, however, Flash Player Square - the preview 64-bit Flash Player is now available and it works fine on Internet Explorer 64-bit.
Even obscure plugins like Key Scrambler work on 64-bit IE now.

In summary, the 64-bit plugin excuse is no longer valid, and Google need to catch up to IE9 64-bit.

As a company that is renowned for innovation and being future ready, one would assume Google is working on a 64 bit Chrome version for Windows. This especially since Microsoft has announced that they (Finally) want to fade out 32 bit Windows versions.

I would be riddled and baffled if Google wasn't making Chrome OS in 64 bit, so it would be logical that Chrome would be too!

Besides that, it would have obvious security benefits to have a 64 bit version, a key-point that Google touts about Chrome.

About plugins, I think they could work anyway as 32 bit since everything is sandboxed and running as separate instances. And Google would probably be able to make some sort of 32 bit-to-64 bit porting tool for developers, minimizing the work they have to do.
