What are the differences between a 64-bit and one 32-bit browser? In general, any application that can be run in 64-bit has better performance than any 32-bit version. They are not only faster but also more secure due to its architecture.
But let’s try to put aside any kind of technicality a bit and let’s get to what really interests us. Can we install a 64-bit browser on a 32-bit operating system? We will answer that question a little further down.

What you should keep in mind is that if you have a 32-bit operating system, there is no way you can install a 64-bit web browser. Even if you did, it would actually be quite counterproductive. Therefore, we recommend that you verify your Windows version before trying anything.
For this you will simply have to go to «This team«Or»My PC«And then right click on a blank space, we choose»Properties (edit)”.
Next, in the section of “System«You will be able to see your processor, RAM, type of system, and so on. Do youHow can we tell if we have a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows?
If you look at «Type of system» it should clarify it a lot. In case of having 64 bits it will say that the processor is x64. If we have a 32-bit operating system then we will have to invest in a new computer.

In the same way as in the case of Chrome, users were not automatically updated when the 64-bit version came out. In order to check which version we have we must go to Help> About Firefox and here we can see if it says (32-bit) or (64-bit) next to the version number of the browser.

In the case of Microsoft Edge You don’t have to do anything, because if your system is 64-bit, then you automatically have the browser installed. If it is 32 bits you will have this version installed. So you should not do anything.
Therefore, in case your computer cannot support the 64-bit operating system, it is impossible for you to install an app with this architecture. Little by little, the 32-bit software and hardware is left in the past to make way for the 64-bit architecture which has a better performance and safety in every way.
