I guess you managed to avoid any and all sites using Flash? Considering the same goes for web-browsing plug-ins....there's no reason to run an x64 browser. What could be the purpose? Is it going to open pages faster? It's laughable that these OSes even include an x64 browsers. Call me jaded from working in corporate IT, but where there's nothing to gain, aside form incompatibilities....it isn't worth the move.

The reason they are including these browsers is for when we make the next jump up from x64. x64 cannot execute 16-bit code and has to emulate x86 code.... So when we have a 128-bit system we ill need x64 based web browsers.... Yes there are incompatibilities, you expect to buy a turbo kit for you car and not have to re-arrange anything? Granted with the size of today's websites it is not needed, yet with the rate at which we are moving to fully cloud based computing (which I hope people figure of that keeping things Local and backing up remotely, is better than working through a web browser saving remotely and backing up locally.) A true x64 based browser may be needed...
