64-bit Web Browsing: Slow Market Penetration


image thumb 64 bit Web Browsing: Slow Market Penetration 64-bit PC’s and laptops are hitting the market consistently now. 64-bit systems are flooding the market, just one of the lacking points is the development of a 64-bit browsers and their components.

It’s pretty obvious that the software developers don’t place a lot of emphasis on this fact.

The natural evolution of software says you’ve got to go to 64-bit . You might as well take advantage of another processor and resources; resulting in faster and a more responsive browsing experience.

There’s not a lot of web browsers out there right now. There’s not a lot of 64-bit programs out there to choose from.

Mozilla Firefox has released a 64-bit version of Firefox code named MINEFIELD, but it’s not considered usable because a lot of the plug-ins are not supported.

Here’s an example. Adobe says they’re working on a 64-bit version, the their solution right now is to use a 32-bit browser. You can use it on a 64-bit Operating System, but you’ve to use a 32-bit browser; it’s a no win situation.

 

Flash Player support on 64-bit operating systems

Issue

Adobe Flash Player is not supported for playback in a 64-bit browser. However, you can run Flash Player in a 32-bit browser running on a 64-bit operating system.

 

Reason

Adobe is working on Flash Player support for 64-bit platforms as part of our ongoing commitment to the cross-platform compatibility of Flash Player. We expect to provide native support for 64-bit platforms in an upcoming release of Flash Player following Flash Player 10.

 

Solution

To use Flash Player to view Flash content on a 64-bit operating system, you must run a 32-bit browser.

 

Microsoft just released a new version of their browser Internet Explorer 8 and it’s compatible with 64-bit, but the Adobe FLASH is not.

While Adobe may not be ready now, I think since Internet Explorer 8 is out that Adobe will start getting their stuff together and get a version released. This will result in other browsers working and more people enjoying the briskness of faster browsing.

 

Thanks for reading.

Enjoy.
