    Is there a good 64 Bit browser

    What benefits are you expecting from the switch to a 64bit browser?

    dont really know, but i would think 64 bit software would take advantage of 64 bit cpu's. maybe give stability or speed

    Been using the 64 bit Chrome since beta. Working great here.

    Don't really know if any benefit. I just like using 64 bit software on a 64 bit OS whenever possible. Call me crazy.

    That makes sense, why use a software meant for a slow 32 bit processer when you can run something that is meant for 64 bit which usually gives better stability and speed

    Me too. I have to say I noticed zero difference though. I can see no discernable difference between any browsers come to that. My speed is far more limited by my internet connection I think than any possible browser difference.

    Incidentally IE11 is 64 bit if you use the metro app or turn on enhanced protected mode in internet options.

    I think Chrome 64 bit is faster than 32 bit. That is my impression, even after using it for a week or so. It is not a big difference however, might be illusion - like when cleaning your car makes it run better :-)
