    64-bit Firefox poised to launch in the near future


    Posted: 03 Oct 2014

    There’s some good news for Firefox fans, as Mozilla seems to have finally decided on officially launching a 64-bit version of its browser.

    Mozilla has finally reached the conclusion that a non- x86 version of its popular browser is a good way to go. Citing the growing marketshare of x64 OS versions and the fact that both IE and Chrome now offer 64-bit versions, Mozilla will now focus on offering a similar version of Firefox.

    There's already 64 bit FF, it's called Cyberfox. Only problem is a one of most important FF features, Add-ons. For 64 bit FF to succeed a full working beta would have to be released and massively used for at least a year, so Add-on base could be redone in 64 bit. Without them, FF is just another (although nice) browser.

    I need at least two for IPTV that are not available in 64 bit, others are not that important.

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