According to

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/280434-internet-explorer-10-enable-32-bit-64-bit-ie10-windows-7-a.html

"The IE10 browser frame process runs 64-bit, but for compatibility with plug-ins, IE10 runs 32-bit tabs by default. If the user turns on “Enhanced Protected Mode”, they will have 64-bit tabs by default for IE10".

My question is whether I should run my tabs in 32-bit or 64-bit mode, and what, if any differences there are. (I am aware that, in IE9, 64-bit was always a bit iffy and I did all my browsing in the 32-bit mode).

Some sites just don't work well in the 64 Bit mode as simple as that.

I wondering if it was as simple as that. So I might as well just leave the default then all sites will work adequately?
