internet exporer 64 bit Question

What is the difference in using the 64 bit internet explorer over the 32 bit internet explorer. So far, all I noticed is that the icons are a little different. I awesome there is more to it than that.

Faster speeds on loading the pages into memory I believe, also faster to run

no flash support in the 64-bit version which basically makes it unusable

if Firefox was 64-bit then it would have the same problem. Adobe or Macromedia or whoever they're called needs to get on the ball.

Windows7 beta 7000

Adobe claims to be working on a 64-bit version of flash for Windows but no statement as to when. Using both, I saw no difference in use between 32-bit and 64-bit.

They have been claiming that for a long time now. Yet they have a x64 version for Linux

64-bit should be a little speedier overall.

It is indeed going to have compatibility problems with things like toolbars, flash, etc. you might use though.

It wouldn't be unusual to simply use the 32-bit version until things like flash, etc. catch up someday in the future.
