Sure, a computer with a 64-bit processor can run almost anything designed for a less robust CPU -- but programs designed specifically for these chips tend to just run, well, better. Google's been trying to drag its web browser into the modern age for a few months now, and today it finally has: Chrome officially supports 64-bit processors on Windows. A beta of the 64-bit code showed up last month, but now it's part of the regular stable release. Why upgrade?
