    In my opinion, differences between x64 and x86 browser should be minor to end user.

    Why sorry I can't find nothing wrong with those looks.
    Too "chromey" May as well just switch to Google.

    I either like two things in a browser: a more classic interface (like Seamonkey) or an IE 9/10/11 interface that's conventional but still sleek. Us Pale Moon fans have jumped ship to avoid having Australis pushed on us.

    Glad you like it just the same.

    They are (you'd have to open a LOT of tabs to see any difference) but it does seem that x64 browsers run more brisk.

    Funny this. Mozilla HAD a working version of 64 bit FF and told the world that it had cancelled it about a couple of years ago. Now it is back? OK, I guess.

    That might be because of Waterfox and Pale Moon and maybe more 64 bit Firefox clones.

    I use both Cyberfox and Firefox.

    They both are just as fast as the other.

    It might also depend on the system that these are installed on.

    Chrome is well, for the birds IMO. Hate it like the plague or Ebola.
    Gets into all aspects of your PC and then, try to get rid of it.

    As for add-ons, the one I use in Firefox run just as well in Cyberfox
    so, can't complain.

    Even tried IE 64bit when I was on Vista and tried it again on 7. I can't
    see any speed gains from either.

    I don't understand why chrome is so popular, so many people push it like the people on CNET or Engadet, leo laporte. Chrome extensions are far inferior to firefox, it contrary to popular myth does not handle memory better and is not any faster

    I've migrated to Pale Moon. I feel sorry for those with Australis on Firefox.
    Agreed.

    I let one of my Windows VMs update to FF32 (I need the latest browsers for my Web Development course).
    Even with the "Classic Theme Restorer" add-on, I can't set it up the way I like (i.e. like FF28 or PM24).

    That has been my experience.

    Chrome uses stupid amounts of memory.
    The updater triggers 4 separate UAC prompts on my PC (so much for invisible background updating)!

    I use Palemoon and have been for a while. It is very good and I doubt that Firefox will be much better.
    Firefox gave up on the 64 bit a while ago, it is strange that they have bothered with it again.
