64-Bit Firefox Poised to Launch in the Near Future

It took a whole lot of time for adopters to embrace 64-bit browser versions, but the scale has tipped enough to finally warrant 64-bit Firefox. Mozilla hasn't made the official announcement yet, but Firefox Wiki has posted documentation showing Mozilla plans to launch a 64-bit version of its browser as Firefox 37 next March.

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.
