Have mercy

Why not a 32 bit version, for the poor, impaired, weak and weary. :thumbup:

I take it that you're on Linux...?
Because for Windows there is a 32 bit version.

Indeed, I am using it, because you can't run 64 bit programs on Windows, since it's using ALL the RAM :P

Sorry, but for various reasons there are no plans for a 32-bit build of Basilisk on Linux.

Everybody has 64-bit machines.

While I understand that there are people who prefer or must use a 32-bit distro, for the vast majority of people there is no real reason they shouldn't be using 64-bit. 32-bit Linux is a dying breed. Additionally, many distros already have or are in the process of dropping 32-bit.

Release engineering - a 32-bit Basilisk must be cross-compiled in a 64-bit environment - something I've not successfully been able to do yet (and have stable binaries).

Basilisk is a modern browser targeting modern systems.

Request granted!

Here is a build that I created for my personal use. Browser will identify itself as "Nightly" as official branding isn't used.
