Hmm - I've just upgraded to a 64-bit desktop machine. The principal reason is so that firefox can address > 4GB of swap (!). Really, FF crashes on me about once a week, because although I have 2GB RAM and 6GB of swap, firefox manages to malloc() 4 GB! No idea where it is going - admittedly I tend to have about 200 tabs open, but that alone shouldn't be the problem.
