Windows 7 to Get 64-bit (x64) Firefox

Quote:
64-bit (x64) architectures are the future, and already well on their way to becoming mainstream and burying 32-bit (x64). Microsoft was one of the first companies to recognize the trend and adapt products such as Windows XP, and then Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Office 2010 to the general trend in the evolution of processors. In fact, the software giant is already producing x64 exclusive software with Windows Server 2008 R2 and beyond, for example. Users currently running the 64-bit flavor of Windows 7 will soon be able to install a 64-bit version of Firefox offered officially by Mozilla.

In a platform meeting on May 25th, 2010, Mozilla indicated that it had been gearing up to produce the first x64 builds of Firefox tailored to Windows 7 by the end of this week. Mozilla’s Armen Zambrano Gasparian revealed that, “Once the builds start working (I almost have them) they will show up in” the Latest Trunk download section. Early adopters will, of course, be able to download x64 Firefox releases and run them on 64-bit Windows 7.

Sounds good to me, although I won't be trying any beta versions. Once an official release is out though, I'm there.

Pretty good news. Now let Flash arrive in x64 someday. Once one popular browser shows up in x64, everything after should follow. Well I hope.

What is the difference from the ones on this site you could already get x64 Firefox for a long time: Firefox Download - Mozilla x86-64

Just the difference between unofficial and official I guess.
Besides, it's almost pointless without a x64 flash player, which we'll never see.

Eh. Still nice to have. Eventually Adobe may get off their rear ends and release a 64-bit version for Windows.

I noticed 64-bit builds popping up in the nightly trunks

Maybe this will be the catalyst to spur Adobe into action. After all they have produced a 64-bit version for linux.
