Mozilla & Gecko clones "Mozilla has published the first Firefox build that integrates a new JavaScript engine that aims to match the performance in IE9 and reduces the gap to Safari, Opera and Chrome. The JavaScript performance is pretty dramatic and, at least on our test system, Firefox 4 is now faster than IE9 PP4."

"x86 code is not legacy code.

32bit x86 is still the native code for the majority of web-connected machines. Therefore it behoves developers to write for that first, although not all developers do that.

Nevertheless it is not unusual for developers to get it developed and released for x86 first, and then worry about x86_64 only later.

Case in point: The Adobe Flash plugin for web browsers is still not available as x86_64 code.
