Please create 64-bit VM's (i.e. the free VM's that have different OS and IE versions and last three months before "expiring").
Even on a very fast machine, the http://dev.modern.ie/ virtual machines are slower than they could be due to their 32-bit OS.
So making a 64-bit set available would increase productivity for many users of these VM's.
Another reason for 64-bit VM's is for the ability to test on 64-bit machines (I've seen this mentioned on other message boards about modern.ie VM's).
THANK YOU for providing VM's!28 votes
The Microsoft Edge / Win 10 VMs released today on dev.modern.ie/tools/vms/ are 64bit.

Both Chrome and Firefox have improved the performance of the reload button. Chrome no longer revalidates subresoruces on reloads. Firefox supports the cache-control:immutable header as a way for sites to signal that they do not want their sub resources revalidated before their expiration
Facebook's internal statistics show that browsers that do not support this behavior cause 10-20% more requests for JS/CSS because users use the reload button to refresh the site.24 votes
