LXer: 32-bit browsing in a 64-bit system

Published at LXer:

The problem: you've taken the trouble to hand-build your finely tuned 64-bit computer, and you've installed your favorite 64-bit flavor of Linux -- but the cretins who run the World Wide Web are still putting up content viewable only on 32-bit Intel-compatible Web browsers, either designed for their in-house plugins that they supply only as 32-bit binaries, or in compressed media formats for which players are available only as 32-bit binaries. What are your options?

Use a 32bit browser. Using the 32bit version of firefox, the only sites with content I can't see are the ones that require Microsoft internet destroyer or some windows only plugin.
