Best x64 browser

#11DC07301981Posted 7/9/2014 11:03:52 AM
I used to use Firefox but then switched to Chrome. I think Chrome is great.

Why is having a 64 bit browser any more useful than all the other ones? What kind of huge advantage would you get from it compared to the 32 bit browsers?
#13Orestes417Posted 7/9/2014 11:25:08 AM
It isn't more useful. Other than innately being able to use, and using up, more memory due to 64-bit registers there's almost no reason to prefer one.

People (aka mouth-breathers) on this forum typically worship Chrome. Might give that one a try?

I just returned to Firefox (Nightly) after using Chrome for a few years, and I'm already liking it better.

Chromes dev channel was recently updated to 64 bit.. These are the benefits, according to them..

Speed: 64-bit allows us to take advantage of the latest processor and compiler optimizations, a more modern instruction set, and a calling convention that allows more function parameters to be passed quickly by registers. As a result, speed is improved, especially in graphics and multimedia content, where we see an average 25% improvement in performance.

Security: With Chrome able to take advantage of the latest OS features such as High Entropy ASLR on Windows 8, security is improved on 64-bit platforms as well. Those extra bits also help us better defend against exploitation techniques such as JIT spraying, and improve the effectiveness of our existing security defense features like heap partitioning.

Stability: Finally, weve observed a marked increase in stability for 64-bit Chrome over 32-bit Chrome. In particular, crash rates for the the renderer process (i.e. web content process) are almost half that of 32-bit Chrome.

I don't know why Firefox itself keeps getting brought up, did they finally release a x64 official version?

PaleMoon is not bad. It's certainly faster than official release.

So, what browser do you use, Mr. High and Mighty?

You're a real charmer on this forum. I don't recall seeing you much around here other than to make snide comments. We already have Time Pharaoh for that, you're not needed.
