Chrome, Firefox, and Edge version 100 problem — expect sites to break

Three commonly-used internet browsers are nearing their 100th versions, and Engadget reported that the triple-digit release numbers in the browsers' User-Agents (UA) could cause problems with several websites.

The browsers in question — Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge — could cause some websites to break when they roll over from a two-digit to three-digit version number.

Time to start a consultancy service, checking and fixing compatibility of 1.2 billion websites. Plenty of work to go around. Lets start with Gov websites. :sneaky:

They will welcome the alibi for why things are not working. They will probably ride that pony for the next year.

Clickbait Heading: Sites will break

Content: Oh but they have a fix, will stick to v99.

Pointless article, hardly news at all

Good grief, Y2K again. Htf has the world survived till now. So everyone just assumed a fixed standard for something that doesn't have a standard? Right...
