Start64!There’s some good news for Firefox fans, as Mozilla seems to have finally decided on officially launching a 64-bit version of its browser.

Mozilla has finally reached the conclusion that a non- x86 version of its popular browser is a good way to go. Citing the growing marketshare of x64 OS versions and the fact that both IE and Chrome now offer 64-bit versions, Mozilla will now focus on offering a similar version of Firefox.

Interestingly, another reason Mozilla gives for this change is the fear that Microsoft might retire the x86 version of its OS with the launch of Windows 10, which would leave Firefox behind its competitors.
