 On https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy and
 https://www.torproject.org/download/download we list the 32-bit Tor
 Browser first, and the 64-bit Tor Browser second.

 Assumption 1: they don't work if you fetch the wrong one. specifically, I
 think the 32-bit one does not work on 64-bit systems. I just checked this
 again and it seems to be true.

 Assumption 2 (Karsten or Sebastian can learn whether this is true, e.g.
 from the same analysis as on #18768): The 64-bit bit one is more used,
 since a lot of people are 64-bit people nowadays.

 If both of these assumptions turn out to hold, I think we should list the
 64-bit one first.
