While both browsers support viewing regular content regardless of if whether it was made on a 64-bit or 32-bit system, some content is not cross-compatible. Anything created using Microsoft's Active X framework, a technology similar to Java that can allow Internet content to interact with Windows, is only compatible with the corresponding browser. This means that 32-bit Active X content only works on the 32-bit browser, while 64-bit content only works with the 64-bit browser.
Although eventually all programs and hardware will be 64-bit, right now most programs are developed on 32-bit systems with 32-bit compatibility in mind.
