chrome betaBack in June, Google released the 64-bit version of the Chrome browser as a beta to developers, but if you’re just a regular user who wants to see what all the fuss is about, you might be pleased to learn that Google has officially announced that the 64-bit Chrome beta is now open to the general public.

According to Google, “The new version replaces the existing version while preserving all your settings and bookmarks, so there’s no need to uninstall a current installation of Chrome.” So why upgrade to a 64-bit version of Chrome? Well according to Google, the 64-bit version of its browser promises to be faster, more stable, and more secure.

However we should point out that the 64-bit version of Chrome is still in its beta phase, meaning that there will probably be some bugs in the software as well as certain features probably not working the way it should for now. We’re not sure when Google will officially release the final version of the 64-bit Chrome to the masses, but given that the beta is now open to the public, we reckon we shouldn’t be too far off from an official release.

Either way for those who are interested in checking out the browser, you can head on over to the Google Chrome beta page for the download.
