IE is already out for x64...it is available to use when you install either Vista x64 or 7 x64...

Most people don't use it or Firefox x64 or others because of lack of flash for x64 and other browser plugins that don't support x64 yet
Zidane24,
I'm running Win7 but task manager is showing me that IE8 is 32 bit. Is there something I should do to get 64bit version?

Greg
You have to actually run IE x64...

Open Windows Explorer->Local Disk->Program Files->Internet Explorer->iexplore.exe

This is the x64 IE while ->Program Files (x86)->Internet Explorer->iexplore.exe is the x86 IE

The IE icon on the superbar defaults to the x86 IE

Also note that both versions share some traits...ex Both versions of mine share my homepage (www.sevenforums.com)

Here is a ton of proof that x64 IE is indeed there...

Isn't IE x64 also in the start menu? Like, Start > All Programs > Top half of the list

I've tried Firefox, Chrome and Opera but I keep going back to IE8 because its the only browser that consistently displays all the sites I visit properly.
At work they are still stuck on IE6 which annoys the c**p out of me.

I probably won't use Chrome again. It just doesn't respect your privacy at all (There are posts about this.)

One thing I hope IE9 includes is the functionality to move toolbars and menus to exactly where you want them, instead of only limited placement options like IE8 and most other browsers.

Haha, ive got Chrome for backup, and Opera for main, so i'll eventually get rid of it from the All Programs Menu.

Whenever IE9 is completed, I'll likely still get it to test it out, not to mention I just like being up to date.
