My Vivaldi is running 32-bit, why wasn't 64-bit installed ?

My laptop running Windows 10, crashed pretty bad yesterday, and as I was trying to rescue it, I noticed Vivaldi which I suspect was the cause of the crash, was running on 32-bit and not on 64-bit ?
How do I install the 64-bit version, and why was 64-bit not installed by default ?

@dpn: When you download vivaldi from the website, it downloads the installer for the 32bit version by default. In order to download the 64bit version, you must click the Different Platforms link, and then select the 64bit version.

Why is the default download 32-bit, and not 64-bit ?
@dpn: Check what Ayespy says here. It's around one year old, but does cover some of the points. Not that x64 versions don't have their advantages, they do, but that (among other reasons the V team may have) may be why the 32bit version is the default/recommended one for Windows, for the time being.
@merryweather That said, my year-old comment is not the latest word. Vivaldi developers are gradually shifting over to making 64-bit the default for systems which can run it. These days it's what I run on all of my 64-bit systems.

I was under that impression, thanks for the information update!
