Google Chrome overview

Google Chrome is a Web browser by Google, created to be a modern platform for Web pages and applications. It utilizes very fast loading of Web pages and has a V8 engine, which is a custom built JavaScript engine. Because Google has used parts from Apple's Safari and Mozilla's Firefox browsers, they made the project open source.

Google Chrome for Mac is widely popular because it offers Google-specific features on your Mac.

Download Google Chrome on your Mac to get a multi-functional web browser that’s easy to use and customize, no matter your skill level.

Google Chrome is preferred by two-thirds of browser users across platforms, securing that position by serving as a major platform of compatibility for web apps, and should not be confused for Chrome OS which is an operating system.

Licensed as proprietary freeware, Chrome uses the Apple WebKit rendering engine for iOS versions.

When you install Chrome on Mac, you automatically get access to Chrome DevTools with the browser. DevTools allows developers to simulate device and to collect vital information on their code and most other web applications in real-time to debug code and analyze load performance.

Release Channels

Stable Channel

This is the latest stable version and the safe option with all the features tested before release.

Beta Channel

These versions are still in the testing stage so you can expect a bug, but you get to test the newest features first

Dev Channel

Dedicated to the people who use the cutting-edge web platform APIs and developer tools to develop apps for all versions of the web. Weekly updates.

Canary Channel

This is the experimental edition of Chrome with all the newest technologies still under development. This new technology is sometimes referred to as Bleeding edge technology, as it can sometimes break down completely and cause havoc.

The work in progress edition is mainly for developers who want to have information about future releases to help them in their creative processes.

Compatibility

Google no longer provides support for older versions than Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.

URGENT: Update Chrome to v99.0.4844.84 (or higher) now! Older versions are suffering from a zero-day security flaw that's active in-the-wild. Chromium and derivatives should also be updating shortly (Brave, etc.). Read about it at: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/emergency-google-chrome-update-fixes-zero-day-used-in-attacks/

Version: 98.0.4758.80
After getting auto-updated (no choice now, it seems), v 98.0.4758.80 crashes/quits frequently when clicking to choose a different tab and even when at rest just reading a page. I've reverted to v 96.04664.110, and it runs normally, but on opening the second time, it's auto-updated to v 98... I tried using the Get Info dialog box to lock the older version, but it doesn't prevent being updated. Anyone else having similar issues? MacAvocate since 1986.

Version: 94.0.4606.71
V94.0.4606.81 is today's new version of Chrome. Lately, Google is chasing down a series of Chrome security flaws. I know it's hard to keep up. But even Google has trouble keeping up with version numbers at its developer site! (o_0) I'm just glad Google's using ASAP updating, as opposed to the antiquated and dangerous second-Tuesday-of-the-month nonsense used by the you-know-whos.

Every update Google pushes out, Chrome starts using WAY too much of my CPU. Fans go crazy, laptop becomes hot, and I have to shut down Chrome. I've used several other browsers and NEVER have this issue with them. Goodbye Google
