when I checked my Task Manager -> Processes .. I noticed that Google Chrome is running as a 32bit application.

ie. chrome.exe *32

is there a way to make it 64 bit?

OS: Windows 7 x64 Bit.

You cannot make any 32-bit programs to be 64 bits unless you compile from source. An app doesn't have 64-bit version simply because the developers don't want to compiler for 64-bit target – Lưu Vĩnh Phúc Jun 5 '14 at 8:15

Chrome 64-bit is now available.

WOOT WOOT @sathya! would that mean we we need to uninstall or re-install our chrome installed version when it goes stable? – Pure.Krome Jun 5 '14 at 10:02
I do believe you'll need to reinstall, but with Chrome sync, that shouldn't be a problem.. @Pure.Krome – Sathya Jun 5 '14 at 10:03
awesome! and yep. :heart: Chrome sync :) – Pure.Krome Jun 5 '14 at 10:05
Chrome x64 available now: – Hoppe Aug 28 '14 at 18:57
@Hoppe thanks for the reminder! – Sathya Aug 29 '14 at 5:34

On Windows, no, there currently is no 64-bit build. Linux is a different story, however.

There is not yet a 64-bit version of either Google Chrome or Chromium available for Windows (though it does include 64-bit versions of a few of the components). There is however work being done to provide one and you can star it to keep up on the progress.
