It appeared to be some sort of a false start yesterday, and Google now plans to launch the new Apple silicon build of the Google Chrome for M1 Macs today: Reports
Initially, this new build was released on Tuesday, but Google pulled it later after some issues were experienced by the users running it on Intel Macs. After they had removed the new build, Google stated that today they’d be having another run at this new release.
This idea of creating a unique version of Google Chrome for the Apple silicon Macs seems pretty straightforward. This new release will eliminate the need for running Chrome browser through Rosetta 2 emulation and users will be able to run it as a native app on their new M1 Macs.
As of the moment, only three Macs exist that run the M1 SoC including MacBook Air, Mac mini, and 13” MacBook Pro.
When the apps run natively, they use less resources and power and also run at a quicker pace. Some really impressive benchmarks have already been observed for the initial wave of the M1-powered Macs both for emulated and native apps. However, things look much more promising as the apps are designed keeping in mind the new chips from Apple.
It’s not yet known as to when Google will take another turn at launching its updated Chrome version for the users, but when the word comes out that it is expected today, we do not really have to wait for a long time and it will soon be here. Just sit tight and wait for the new release.
