Google Chrome 64 Bit for Linux

A 64-bit version of the Google Chrome browser is now ready, but Windows users will still have some time to wait for their version.

In a mailing list posting this week, Chrome developer Dean McNamee wrote that the Google v8 JavaScript team have working on a 64-bit port. There are now full instructions on the Google Code wiki for Chromium on how to build Chrome for 64-bit Linux.

  1. I think this is only the beginning of a trend we’re likely to see over the next several months. Google’s application development for Linux has been lagging behind (SketchUp, anyone?). Their announcement of a planned Google OS—based on Linux—puts a burden on their developers to have their own applications available for their OS. Failing to have those applications ready would look rather… pathetic.

  2. Don’t worry, Mike, I’ll build you a nice 64-bit system.

    I’ve been using the 64-bit Chromium dev build for a few hours now, and I like it. Nice rendering, and very small RAM/CPU footprint. It’s not exactly Google Chrome, but built on Chromium just the same.

  3. Wait, Mike, are you saying they posted 64-bit to the exclusion of 32-bit??

    I haven’t even looked into this yet, only tried Chrome briefly on Windows at work, but I should do so right now — I’m sitting at a 64 bit Ubuntu box at the moment. No time like the present!
