More Bits, More Browsers

Keeping up with the 64-bit server, Microsoft has released (last month) a 64-bit version of IE6 for Windows Server 2003 SP1/x64. The server will ship with both the 64-bit and the 32-bit versions, with the 32-bit connected to most of the UI entry points.

We found that in our own every day use of the 64-bit client, the 64-bit browser was difficult to use because web sites hadn’t authored common controls for 64-bit clients.

No word yet on any rendering implications.
