I am running Mac OS X 10.6.8. I downloaded Google Chrome but in my Applications Chrome has a cross. When I open it, it says my Mac is not compatible.

Once I booted with 64bit and Chrome was working! However my Internet (dial-up) does not work in 64bit (32 only).

Is there a way to get Chrome on 32 bit for Mac? I downloaded Chrome official website.

Google discontinued its 32-bit version for OS X almost a year ago. Additionally even if you could get a 32-bit version it is going to have lots of security issues. So why would you want to run it knowing it has lots of unresolved security issues!

From Install Chrome on your computer:


System requirements

To use Google Chrome, your computer needs:

  • Mac OS X 10.6 or later
  • An Intel processor that's 64-bit
  • 350MB of free disk space
  • 512MB of RAM

Also have a look at the following two hyperlinks. The first of which I added an image of in case the link goes dead in the future.

  • Thank you for the answer I will stick with safari for now then.
