Is Crossover Chromium for Mac a 64 bit browser?

There doesn't seem to be any 64 bit browsers for Mac, so I was wondering if Crossover Chromium was that. I have a user that needs it for an an application to fully work.  Even though the OS has java 1.6 installed, the 32 bit browsers can only use Java 1.5.  Thanks for replying!

If you read this bug report carefully, it looks like you can launch 64 bit Java applets through 32-bit Safari.

I thought your best bet for 64 bit browsers was Firefox, but they have not completely gone to Cocoa for the Mac version, so it is not 64-bit capable on the Mac platform yet, although there definitely is a 64 bit Linux version - just get a 64 bit Linux distribution. I run the latest openSUSE and Ubuntu on my Mac in Vmware and they run fine without any problems (although I run the 32 bit versions).
