heads up: three-digit web browser version
« on: December 25, 2021, 04:28:23 pm »
Soon we'll have web browsers with three-digit versions, e.g. Chrome and Firefox. Some CMS developers missed the big Y2k fun (maybe too young?) and repeated the same mistake. Their CMS works only with one or two-digit browser versions in the User Agent string. Yay!

- Chrome 100 could break some websites next year, but Google is working on solutions (
- Force Chrome major version to 100 in the User-Agent string (
- Mozilla tests if 'Firefox/100.0' user agent breaks websites (
- Firefox 100 User-Agent Experiment (

Much fun! :-DD

Sure imposing abritrary limits to numbers is rarely a good idea for long-term stuff.

But here, this completely idiotic versioning scheme backfires, and I find that hilarious.
