What would be a benefit of having x86 and x64 versions on a x64 platform?

I can forsee none but I could be wrong

Java for both 32-bit and 64-bit IE browsers.
If you use both 32-bit and 64-bit browser interchangeably, you need a Java Plug-in for each browser. Hence you will need to install both 32-bit and 64-bit Java respectively.
Which version of Java should I download for my Windows 64-bit operating system?

hm...I downloaded Java 64 just to try out Runescape and used IE (32-bit version) and I had no issues...

Actually scratch that I remember using Runescape's built in link for Java (too lazy to type java.sun.com)

I guess I got the 32 bit runtime...

There shouldn't be any issues. Java says if you use both x86 and x64 browsers then download both.

It's what I've always done since I've been running x64, don't use my 64 bit IE that much, but never have any problems.

But x64 Flash is another story though.

Yeah no kidding about the flash...I got the 32bit runtime (just looked). The only browsers I use are IE (32 bit) and Firefox (32 bit by default) so it would seem that I don't really need Java 64 eventhough I am on a 64 bit platform. I guess it wouldn't hurt to install both

I have both installed - just in case Adobe gets off their collective arses and decides to put out a 64bit flash, I am moving to 64bit browsers faster than you can say

Is Firefox only 32 bit? I have never bothered to look that up but now I am starting to wonder

Firefox from Mozilla servers is only 32bit - but since the source code is open and available to all, there are third party builds that are 64bit.

My problem is finding someone who is compiling trunk builds into 64bit, as that is what I would prefer. I have toyed (numerous times) with the idea of learning how to compile it myself, along with making it architecture specific (which are other builds) into an all in one for my machine - I have a sneaking suspicion I could really get Fx to scream along if I were to do that....

but I always get distracted by tennis, or classwork, or gfs, or whatever....

Yeah, what Aaron "I am super-micro-second-response-man" aka Airbot wrote.

He can be that is for sure...

Until flash goes x64 I will stick with the 32 bit browsers (sadly)

Really Adobe what the hell is taking so long for x64?
