If you use Chrome on a Mac, you might notice that your browser is now 64-bit compatible. Google released the Stable version of Chrome 39 as an automatic update for those Macs that have 64-bit processors, which should be all of them after the middle of 2008 or so.

We discuss that news as well as the beta launch of Skype for the web and new video codec news for Google Chrome Canary on this week’s podcast.
