images/news/firefox.jpgOver the last couple of weeks, Mozilla has finally stepped up its 64-bit testing process. There are now five slaves dedicated to building Firefox for Windows x64, which means that from Firefox 8 and onwards, youíll be able to pick up 64-bit builds that are functionally identical to its 32-bit cousins but operating in native 64-bit CPU and memory space.

Plugins get a boost: There are now stable 64-bit browser plug-ins for Flash and Java. In other words, thereís very little reason to not use Firefox 8 x64; you can download a copy from the Nightly site (it wonít interfere with your stable install), grab Flash 11 beta for Windows x64 and Java 6 for Windows x64, and start surfing. Itís that simple.
