Firefox 8 lands, and there’s still no official Windows 64-bit support

It’s Tuesday. Time for a new Firefox release. One without official 64-bit Windows support, of course.

The official line is because there aren’t enough native 64-bit plugins yet. Although Java and Flash are available, which are likely to be the two people care most about. Release a 64-bit browser, and the other lesser-used plugins will have no choice to follow. Wait for the plugins, and tomorrow never comes. Somebody has to blink first to end the stalemate.

At this rate, it’ll probably be Google.
