Mozilla flips, will let 64-bit Firefox live

news article released on:

Last month, Mozilla Engineering Manager Benjamin Smedberg announced that the company was killing off 64-bit nightly builds of the popular Firefox browser. At the time, the engineer said there was "significant negative feedback," but it appears that has been revised as Mozilla is re-instating the builds. A new post, called 'Update on turning off 64-bit Windows builds,' the engineer ...

Is Mozilla that out of touch? I really liked older version of Firefox, but really can't stand the newer updated style of the browser they chose in newer versions. To hear a company say they won't support 64-bit really makes me think they are even more out of touch. What will they do now, pull 32-bit to only support 16-bit, and then 8-bit only. This is ludicrous if Mozilla continues down this path.

Ya i can't remember ever getting more then 15 windows/tabs opened at once, after that I find i'll trash too much looking for what I might need, after then i start closing them all and then restart for the windows i really need at the time.

While opening 100's windows/tabs might be a valid test for stress/perf it doesn't seem practical for ordinary use cases, again sure sounds like Mozilla is seriously out of touch of reality?

I wonder where other browsers would tip over, 20, 50, 100 windows/tabs...
