As of 2018, there were more than 100 million Macs in use, and Computerworld reported that more than 25% of Mac users opt to use Chrome as their browser, despite it not coming pre-installed on the operating system.

According to Google’s test run, the Chrome update will support 18 hours of YouTube video or 17 hours of web browsing on the new M2-powered MacBook Pro running macOS Ventura, per TechCrunch. Data for performance on older Mac models with Intel chipsets wasn’t available.

Google automatically downloads and applies updates in the background on occasion, but you can see if you’ve been updated (and do it yourself if not) by clicking the “More” button in the upper right corner, selecting the “Help” menu, then “About Google Chrome.”
