Google releases beta 64-bit version of Chrome web browser

    The developers of the Google Chrome web browser have announced the long-awaited version of the browser for users, which has native support for 64-bit versions of Windows. True, so far only in beta. Previously, such an opportunity was present only in the experimental version of the browser, which is called Canary . In the new version, Chrome executables are compiled as 64-bit, in addition, there is support for the persistent ASLR ( High Entropy ASLR) that appeared in Windows 8) Note that only Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1 x64 with the corresponding security options has similar security functions (64-bit processes for tabs and support for HEASLR). Both browsers also support sandboxing technologies for tab processes, but implement them differently. Google Chrome relies on the capabilities of a special task object and Deny SID, while IE11 relies on the Integrity Level mechanism built into Windows 8 - AppContainer.
