IE7 32bit and 64bit?


Overclocked Like A Mother
Hey all,

What is the difference between these, other than obvious bit thing.

Why can't vista have the IE764bit as a selection in the start menu properties?

well.. last time i checked (couple of months ago) the 64 bit version wasnt all that great

there are like 0 plugins for it, but idk how the situation is now...

oh, and performance difference with the 32 bit version was non existant

There's an open bug at sun for a 64-bit java plugin thats unresolved for over 5 years now. There is no flash or acrobat reader support either. On linux you can use the nspluginwrapper to load flash and acrobat and it works [mostly]. There is the icedtea plugin for java which is 64-bit and about 50% reliable. I don't think there are any workarounds for 32 bit plugins to work on a 64 bit windows browser, but I could be wrong.

Basically no proprietary support for 64-bit ATM.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
