As per the recent trends and statistics going around on the internet, Google Chrome after it came out of Beta Version gained in on its Browser Market Share significantly. Although it is difficult to accurately calculate its Market Share it is somewhere in the region of 1.10% – 1.25%, enough to get it past the much older Opera Browser.
Though the rise of market share has been significant for Chrome, mainly due to its hype generated, the aggressive marketing and advertising by Google and the most important factor being that Chrome is a Google Product, its increase has been somewhat hampered by lack of any Mac Version or a Linux version for the browser, apart from extensions and plugins support so far.
I have been getting loads of emails about queries for the Mac and Linux versions of Chrome which actually undermines the fact that once these versions are released a lot of new users would come to Chrome. I was also hearing about various compatibility issues with respect to Google Chrome running on the latest operating system from Microsoft – the Windows 7 64 Bit versions. Today i came across a nice post from BlogsDNA who posted the solution for making Google Chrome work on Windows 7 64 Bit. I am pointing out the steps below to make it work :
Make Google Chrome Work on Windows7 64 Bit
- Right Click on the Google Chrome Shortcut Icon
- Click on Properties and Select the Shortcut Tab From the Properties Window
- In the Target Field put –in-process-plugins right after chrome.exe
- Click On Apply to save the changes and Then Click on OK to close the window
- Now Open Google Chrome It would work on your Windows 7 64 Bit.
