Safari 4 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard is 64bit with the plugins running in a separate process to allow for 32bit plugins. I don't know about Safari 4 on Windows, though.

"Most 64-bit Linux distros come with a 64-bit version of Firefox. There is also one of those for Windows. Other than that, I don't think there are many 64-bit browsers.

To be honest, you don't really need one. The speed increase would be marginal at best, and most plugins (Flash) aren't 64-bit-compatible yet (although Java finally made a 64-bit version of theirs). You'd gain nothing from using a 64-bit browser, so there's no point. Developers don't want to waste the time, either, so you probably won't see too many in the near future (at least not for Windows)."

"Nowadays, nearly every major browser available supports 64-bit. Some browsers have even been dropping support for 32-bit.

Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari (Mac), and Internet Explorer all have 64-bit versions."
