heads up: three-digit web browser version


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!

- Force Chrome major version to 100 in the User-Agent string (

- Firefox 100 User-Agent Experiment (

Much fun! :-DD
