Firefox goes 64-bit on Windows, offers performance gains

64-bit version of Firefox now available for download, has better performance but reduced plugin support

At long last, Mozilla is publicly offering a 64-bit version of its Firefox browser. Available for Windows users on 64-bit versions of Windows 7 or above, it's said to offer increased performance.




The downside is reduced plugin support, but the company says it's moving away from plugins anyhow and toward developing key features previously offered by plugins in-house, so this all part of the plan.


You can download the 64-bit version of Firefox here.
