Google has decided to finally bring native Arm support to Chrome on Windows.
Chromium has offered support for the Arm64 architecture for a while now, and Firefox and Edge have both offered native support for Arm for a number of years, so it’s unclear why Google waited so long to add support as well. There are currently relatively fewer Arm64 Windows PCs out there, which might have been a determining factor.
Using the browser without it offering native support could take significantly more battery power to run than using one of its rivals. If you’ve tried using Chrome on an Arm device, you’ve also likely noticed the browser is a bit slower and has performance issues you don’t see on other systems.
Those with a Windows on Arm PC can download the latest Chrome Canary build now to test Google Chrome running natively on Arm. A stable release is expected in late February.
