When are actual releases of 64 bit browsers (preferably Chrome or Firefox) going to be released that can access flash/javascript etc.?

Also, are there any predictive benchmarks that show how much faster than their respective 32-bit counterparts they will actually be when they are released?

I'm not talking beta builds, I mean the real deal.

It is believed that FF 4.0 will have a 64 bit version but the main problem with 64 bit browsers is that Adobe is way behind on 64 bit support making 64 bit browsers very limited in their acceptance until Adobe 64 bit Flash support takes plcce.

A beta versio of Firefox 64 exists and bencharks show it having some speed benefits but also limitations (all due to being beta software and with limited 64 support from major 3rd party software like Adobe).

Agree, IE7 and IE8 (both x64) don't have yet the flash plugin.
