32 & 64 bit versions are at the same level. 

As 32-bit versions are the past, we should maybe:
* state that the 64-bit is recommended
* remove the 32-bit direct download link
* ...

Kohei, would you have an idea?

As briefly discussed on IRC,

* Highlight the visitor's platform column
* Blur other columns

Plus,

* Highlight the visitor's preferred language row(s)
* Blur other rows
* Fix the table header

This will look like this:

https://bedrock-demo-firefox-all.us-west.moz.works/en-US/firefox/all/

(still needs styling for narrower layouts and testing though)

I am getting 32 bit highlighted https://screenshots.firefox.com/nMKMQojaIo0IuLpy/bedrock-demo-firefox-all.us-west.moz.works (from a 64 bit system).
is that expected?

Also, what will happen if I am a Firefox 32-bit user on a 64-bit system? In that case, we don't want to highlight 32 but 64 instead.

tbh, I am not convinced this is going far enough to tell to the user that 32-bit isn't recommended anymore.
