Google Chrome Reloaded: All New 64 Bit Web Browser For Windows 7 And 8

Windows Support Number

Windows To Run 64 Bit Chrome

Admit it, it’s been long since you have used the Internet Explorer. Even if Microsoft has managed to hold on to various markets like Office suite and Operating systems, it has continued to fail in providing a basic level web browser that won’t crash moments after opening.

While most of the recent versions have been slow and buggy even after repeated patches and updates, even the stable versions like Internet Explorer 6 were under the line of fire when it was discovered that the web browser has a major security law that can be manipulated by any script junkie to gain access to your entire computer. The slow, unstable and buggy performance of the in-built web browser paved way to the prominence of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, the two leading web browsers that are in use today. To know more about the problems in Internet Explorer, contact us by calling on our Windows support number.

Google, on the other hand, brought stable and lightning speed web browsers onto the market, free of cost, which created a whole new landmark for other web browsers to follow. Do you fear any security concerns? Google is so proud of their web browser security that they will give away a Million dollars to any hacker who can spot a vulnerability in the web browser!

Google recently went ahead to roll out a stable 64 channel Chrome web browser for both Windows 7 and Windows 8. This stable release has finally come long after the Alpha version was released back in July through the Canary and Dev channel. According to Google, the new 64-bit system has higher graphics and speed improvement when compared to the present media benchmarks. The Chromium blog notes that, “For example, the VP9 codec that’s used in High Definition YouTube videos shows a 15% improvement in decoding performance.”

64 Bit Chrome Released For Windows

Google Chrome provides even more added security measures, specifics of which were mentioned in the blog, “Finally, on 64-bit, our defense in depth security mitigations such as Partition Alloc are able to far moreeffectively defend against vulnerabilities that rely on controlling the memory layout of objects.”

Users can enjoy better memory usage and speed from the 64-bit Google Chrome web browser, thanks to its architecture.  Although these results can be established in benchmark tests, users may not see a major difference between the speed of the previous Chrome and the current Beta version. However, all users will be able to note the difference in the overall performance of the system. To know more about the 64-bit version, you may contact us on our Windows support number.

Windows Support Number

             Call Windows Support Number

In the Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) held earlier this year, Microsoft made it clear that they will be releasing few low cost 8-inch Windows tablets in the near future. The announcement was made by Microsoft’s COO Kevin Turner on the stage, when he was called up on for speaking about the latest and upcoming Windows devices to their business partners. In his speech, Turner made it clear that the company will be releasing budget smart tablets with screen size less than 9 inches for $99 onwards.

He also made it clear that the devices will be released to the market this year itself. This means that the users would not have to wait an awful lot of time to get their hands on the device. Turner also made it clear in his speech that more Windows devices are set to release in the market soon. We got to know from the Windows support number that the main reason for the affordable pricing and widespread use of Windows operating systems now is the fact that Microsoft has made Windows operating systems free for devices with screen size less than 9 inch. The information was given to the public through the Build conference that was held earlier this year.

However, it is only now that the hardware partners of Microsoft have decided to take advantage of the features. This will mean that the users will be able to get a lot of affordable Windows tablets and phones in the near future from a variety of developers. It is heard that Microsoft is all set to release the new version of the Surface tablet with an 8-inch screen. However, our trusted sources claim that the project was scrapped for now as Microsoft plans to release the device after the Office for Touch is ready to go.

Office For Touch

               Get Windows Support

This leaves us with a hope to get a Surface tablet for as less as $99. However, even if the company chooses to drop the production of the tablet, there will be many more Windows tablets in the industry from other manufacturers. Microsoft also showcased a budget friendly and feature rich laptop from HP in the Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) that costs just about $199.

It is heard that Microsoft plans to release some Windows devices from Acer and Toshiba for putting a leash on the sales of the Google’s Chromebook. For further news and updates, contact the Windows support number.

End Of Windows Server 2003 Support Likely To Trigger Sales

Windows Support Number

          Contact Windows Support

There is good news for Microsoft this week. A study held by a Dell executive indicates that the sale of Microsoft’s latest servers could be improved this year because of the imminent expiration of support for Windows Server 2003. Microsoft has been notifying the users for the last few months about the end of Windows Server 2003 support next year. According to a Microsoft expert we contacted via Windows support number, the frequent notification about the imminent end of support for the server was intended to help users upgrade to latest versions in time and thereby avoid all the possible problems that might arise due to the use of an unsupported server.

Surprisingly, Microsoft wasn’t hoping that the end of support for Windows Server 2003 would trigger the sale of latest Windows Servers. The reason is that the end of Windows XP support didn’t trigger the sale of Windows 8 family of operating systems. Meanwhile, some experts at Microsoft point out that the end of XP support triggered Windows 7 sales. Same way, end of Windows Server 2003 support could trigger the sale of servers such as Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Unlike Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, Microsoft’s latest servers have proven to be effective and user friendly. They have caused least troubles.

Since Windows Server 2012 R2 is the latest sever, Microsoft wants all users of Windows Server 2003 to upgrade to this. However, people have four different choices to upgrade to, namely Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

Microsoft estimates that there are about 12 million users for Windows Server 2003 at the moment. With the end of tech support and lifting of Windows support number options for Windows Server 2003 next year, all these users should upgrade to the any of the servers that enjoy either mainstream or extended support from Microsoft.

Linux posing threat to the Microsoft servers

Microsoft does not hide its concern that the people might choose to migrate to Linux servers after considering the cost of upgrading to latest Windows servers. However, it will not be a severe threat because Linux has its limitations. It can’t certainly be a perfect alternative to Windows servers.

In terms of features, support and customer reviews, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 have greater potentials to attract users. Therefore, it can definitely defuse the threat from Linux or any other competitor servers.
