    How long until the 64-bit version is released?

    A more worthy question!

    The world continues to wait.

    Google is the panopticon. This is why I don't use chrome and I won't have a nest product.

    Besides an indicator, I'd expect a per-tab _mute_ button.

    I'd like it to block noisy tabs, block metro 8 and block malware. Maybe I should just go back to lynx.

    This noisy tabs indicator has been running here for weeks.

    But basically I agree. I don't want to just Know about noisy tabs, I want the noise blocked by default
    until I decide I want to listen.

    So close, Google, but you are still protecting the advertisers at the expense of the users.
    Shut them UP.

    As if Apple and Microsoft are better ...

    I see a lot of people playing music in a Youtube (or whatever) tab while doing other things in the other tabs. Automatically muting any background tabs will break that usage.

    On my machine (Fedora 20):

    13:15:29 > file /opt/google/chrome/chrome
    /opt/google/chrome/chrome: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.24, BuildID[sha1]=74ebd85bfc06b9bb44a2dac8f221edef5b09dbcc, stripped

    Been running 64 bit Chrome and Firefox for some years now. As for a 64bit Google Chrome running on a 64 bit Microsoft OS (you can't expect 64 bit binaries to run on a 32 bit OS) I can't say and really don't care.

    two questions - who has the capability and who has the desire?

    Google has the desire. The only way they make money is by tracking everything about you and selling that info. They have the capability - their search is #1, with double-click they can track you on all different sites. Their browser is huge too. Their phone is huge. now they're getting into home equipment too!

    MS has some capability too. They have the browser, although that is trending down. they have the search engine, although that is 2nd and smaller. They have the phone, but it is an also ran. They own the living room with xbox. but I'm not sure they have the desire. Ultimately they make money by selling software, and to a small extent hardware. but they don't seem to know what they want to do these days, so I wouldn't be surprised if they're throwing everything against the wall.

    apple has amazing capability in mobile but they have zero desire. They know that they make %% through hardware sales, to the extent that they're now giving away OS X, iOS, iLife, and iWork.

    I trust apple the most here, because where there's a will there's a way.
