Is there a 64-bit version of Google Chrome for OS X Mavericks?

I need to run NetBeans and it requires Java 7 Update 10 at least.

Since v39, Chrome is 64-bit.

At the time of writing, there is no 64-bit version of Google Chrome for Mac.

You should be able to run your Java content in Safari for now, since Safari is 64-bit and can run Java 7.

    Im writing this from the year 2020, and still there is no Chrome 64bit for Mac. Why? Because Google doesn't care.

  • @thedp 64 bit Chrome for Windows was released yesterday; OS X should be coming soon

Just to keep this thread up to date - Google Chrome is now 64-bit, since v39



There is officially no 64-bit version of Google Chrome for Mac, neither is there a 64-bit Chromium version for Mac.

You can however, download an experimental build of 64-bit Chromium for Mac.

Alternatively you can download the source code and build your own version of 64-bit Chrome with the following command

build/gyp_chromium -Dtarget_arch=x64 -Dhost_arch=x64

Development Status

The Chromium Development team has been working on building 64-bit Google Chrome since August 2009. Consider starring this Chromium bug/feature request and contributing if you are able to Chromium Issue 18323
