Google released Google Chrome optimized with Apple’s M1 processor. The company, which updated Google Chrome’s website, started to distribute Chrome optimized for these processors until a few hours ago. However, the version compatible with the M1 processor is currently not available for download.
US-based technology giant Apple recently announced its new Mac products with M1 processors. These processors, manufactured by Apple, will be a pioneer in the company’s personal computer industry. However, the transition process will not be easy. Because many software need to be re-optimized for these processors, and Google has officially done this. The company quietly released Chrome optimized for M1 processor Macs.
Google has added a new option to the website prepared for Chrome to make it easier for users. In this way, users can choose an Intel or Apple Silicon processor when they want to download Chrome for their Mac computers. However, some users say that even though they use a Mac with Intel processor, Google Chrome has been updated and the new version is compatible with the M1 processor.

Meanwhile, the Apple Silicon processor-powered version of Google Chrome has been released with the new 87-code version of Chrome. The latest version saves CPU usage by up to 5 times while increasing battery performance by 1.25 hours. In addition, while the overall operating performance of Chrome has increased by 25 percent, web pages are now opening faster.
However, the version of Google Chrome specifically optimized for the M1 processor was discontinued a few hours ago. Although it is not known why Google did such a thing, it seems that the crash problems caused the new version to roll back. It remains unclear at the moment when the problems will be fixed.
