I'm using Firefox now on my Windows 7 64 bit OS.
It seems OK to me,
Firefox is the best browser out there. Chrome is closing up though.
Seamonkey and Chrome here.
Use the 32-bit version...
One problem with 64-bit browsers is that a lot of common plug-ins, including Flash Player, do not exist. Since you can run 32-bit software on a 64-bit version of Windows, why not? At this time, the cons still outweigh the pros in the case of browsers.
I have been checking the Adobe web site often and they now have a 64 bit flash version.
You can get one just for Explorer or for other browsers Windows and Linux.
I have only been using it for about a 2 days now but seems to work so far.
browser for Win 7
I use Google Chrome and it works just fine.

google chrome crashes frequently on win7 64bit
google chrome on win7 64bit
Try Maxthon! ;D
running chrome, ie9 and firefox
ie9 much better than ie8 but chrome is flawless
im running an asus i7 x58 runs like a dream
from cold start to opening chrome takes 11 seconds!
ie9 adds 6 seconds!
but still good
no glitches with either chrome or ie9
chrome and win 7 64bit
im looking for a new browser cause google chrome crashes constantly!
There are many to choose from.
But as you read this discussion you slowly realize their machine has other issues. It was not a browser issue.
You do not need to run a 64-bit browser on your 64-bit windows. 32-bit browsers still work, albeit with an unnoticeable performance hit. Personally I am a big fan of using Google Chrome, but IE and FireFox work as well. Whatever browser you choose, keep it updated, and browse safe. The majority of infections etc are caused by un-patched systems and user-stupidity.
Best browser for Windows 7
I have been using Mozilla Firefox for a number of years, during this time my computers, approx 4 have been 32bit. When I bought this one - Windows 7 64bit, I installed Firefox, along with a number of other 32bit programs easily & I might add with great success, so have no worries - go for ir.
chrome or zinc
while i have noticed that any browser seems to work just fine on 64 bit windows (i have vista) i like chrome for speed and love zinc for the video --- if you don't know zinc i suggest checking it out esp if you watch a lot of videos/tv on your pc
Yeah I use and like Chrome too but I'm glad I know about zinc now. It'll be so nice watching shows from stations that don't support hulu as well as shows that are on hulu all in one central location.
64 bit Browser
F.F. does make a 64 bit browser. It is codenamed "Namorka". It works fine, is much faster, but NO YouTube! YouTube requires Flash in F.F. There is NO 64 bit Flash! So, back to the standard 32 bit F.F.! If you do experiment with Namorka, be sure to back-up everything first! When you uninstall Namorka, you also remove all your settings for 32 bit F.F.! Be sure to use FEBE!!!!
My 2 cents
I whole embrace Opera as my main webbrowser - it's fast, full of options and always has been an innovative browser. Have a look! www.opera.com
Thanks for all the replies.
Thank you all. It seems as though it was an easy one to answer, for it doesn't even seem to have been worth asking! Good education, however; so t.u.
I would recommend, like most others here, you use a 32-bit version of F.F. as it will work on 64-bit AND it will have plugins available. I would also recommend Sea Monkey (only because it is a full internet suite for free).
I need this answer too
I would like to know how it`s done...
Explain more please?
How what is done?
Choose a browser to try, download it, install it, and test.
That's how it works.
But perhaps I have misunderstood your problem?
FF is fine, Safari not
I'm using Firefox on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine and it works just fine. I like playing around with browsers and so far have only had problems with Safari, which also caused me problems on 32-bit Windows Vista and Windows XP, so I just stopped using it.
My HP computer came with IE8 for both 32- and 64-bit, but I stopped using the 64-bit because as others have said there were too many video players that didn't work with it and I couldn't see any important difference in speed. Once you become accustomed to some of the visual differences (the Linux- like triangles you have to click to open folders in a tree, the Office ribbon menus), Windows 7 is an attractive environment for the desktop and and works more intuitively than past Windows...
Firefox 64 bit
Firefox has 64 bit version in development called Minefield. Only issues so far are no flash player is available, not alot of video that will display, and plugins
I agree. I have stopped using Google Chrome, since it fell over when i was doing something important and never worked again. And I tried firefox 32 on my X64 windows 7 pc and that has a bug, that means you have to manually go into task manager and stop the process and restart firefox if you want to use it twice in the same windows session.... bizarre....
Flash 64 Bit preview
Adobe is working on a 64bit version of their Flash Player. You can check it out at the link below.
lol Just be careful your going to be a genie pig for them or a better word would be a beta tester.
minefield is the best ! you get x64 flash plugins also from adobe..its way far better than usual firefox,chrome nd iE..try it
We never recommend ...
"normal" users to use development versions in their normal environment.
Browsers forum: Best browser for 64 bit WIndows 7
I'm using Google Chrome. The best browser out there! Fast and reliable. I
haven't given Opera 10 a shot yet, but it seems like it's got great
support with Win 7.
