I remember there used to be an IE x64, I don't see it on this win7x64 PC now though, and I heard Mozilla dropped FF x64 support.
Just wondering if anyone uses any 64-bit browsers and what ones?

Metro-style browsers, including Internet Explorer 10, are 64-bit by default, and Internet Explorer 10 opts in to using HEASLR.

On 64-bit Windows 8, the browser frame process (both “modern UI” and Desktop) runs 64-bit. However, for compatibility with plug-ins, IE 10 on the desktop runs 32-bit tabs by default. If the user turns on “Enhanced Protected Mode” in Internet Options, Advanced; they will have 64-bit tabs by default for IE 10 on the Desktop.
