No. Their JavaScript interpreter is a JIT which means it's inherently 
target-specific, and they only have code for 32-bit x86 and ARM. Their code 
is also said not to be 64-bit-safe in other places as well. :-(

So basically it's a worthless piece of crap. Software still not supporting 
x86_64 these days is just broken. Having to pick one, they should have 
targeted x86_64, not 32-bit x86, with their JIT.
