Mozilla & Gecko clones "Mainstream microprocessors have been 64-bit for years. Operating systems have followed suit. Now it's time for a program used by hundreds of millions of people to make the leap: Firefox. Programmer Armen Zambrano Gasparnian announced the first 64-bit Firefox builds for Windows on Friday, offering an FTP site for those who want to download it. But the software isn't for mainstream users yet."

Who in their right mind downloads the executable from Mozilla's website, I wonder? Does any 64-bit distro include the 32-bit version of firefox in its repos? Did it maybe make it easier to run the flash plugin before Adobe released the 64-bit linux version?
