Since you brought it up: there are not "some" incompatibilities. There are so many incompatibilities between IE9 and modern web standards that a forum cannot list them all. IE9 is inept at best and the worst browser on the planet by far.

I don't mean to speak for the OP, but what I think they are saying is that there are still some incompatibilities with a 64 bit browser.

You might be right, and I wasn't sure when I first read it, but he mentioned the other browsers in the same breath.

So drhoward_t See Profile, do you feel that Waterfox is just as bad as IE, as the Garmin GPS web site does not work properly in Waterfox, due to the plug-in not being able to be installed, just like it does not install in IE9 64 bit, but works fine in Firefox?

I don't know anything about Waterfox and only first heard about it on this board. Quickly looking around, it looks like someone grabbed the Firefox source and compiled a 64-bit version. It's not from Mozilla or endorsed by Mozilla so no telling what had to be changed to make it work.

In any case, it can't be as bad as IE9.

Paolo I agree, there should be a "set default" like in IE 9 32 bit, or any of the other browsers out there.

But, as my picture on page 1 shows, Windows won't let you set IE 64 bit (I believe this is true in both Version 8 and Version 9) as the "default" browser for your OS.

Getting a bit OT here, I wonder if you can set IE 10 64 bit as your default in Windows 8? I installed the Consumer Preview a while back, but I don't remember looking at that specific setting. I would hope that in Win 8, Microsoft fixed that little issue.

maybe its a matter of time before 64 bit plugins become widespread before they allow u to set as default.
