Phoronix: Firefox Runs On 64-bit ARM (AArch64)
While it will still be a while before consumers are able to see 64-bit ARM hardware on their desk, Mozilla's Firefox web-browser on AArch64 (64-bit ARM) is working...
Good stuff. I wish ARM called it "ARM64" instead of "AArch64", though. I know they must've thought it would be confused with AMD64, but I doubt it because nobody really uses AMD64, and it would've still been a better compromise than using AArch64. Oh well. Nobody ever accused chip companies of being good with names.
If they manage to give us fanless laptops with HiDPI screens nice design and good performance bring it. Some proprietary apps are required though. We already know that there won't be any trouble running the FOSS ones.
And still no 64bit Version for Windows ...
Note: The unofficial Build are no full features Builds. Many features are disabled on x64.
I've been using Nightly (nightly builds of Firefox's latest code) Win64 builds for years now. For all those people who are going to say "nightly builds are unstable", I've never had any issues with them. I really don't understand why it took Chromium so long.
Firefox is really betting behind!
No 64 bit support for x86_64 while all other browsers have.
Mozilla needs to spend some time on improving the technical inards of Firefox, under the hood features!
