Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers in the world and we celebrate the 100th update of one of the most prevalent software in many of our lives. Not only was the 100th update recently released for the Android and iOS versions of Chrome, but the desktop version of Chrome 100 has also been tested to be stable and has already started rolling out to Chrome users worldwide.
Unfortunately, it’s not a particularly exciting update for the big 100. The usual set of bug fixes can be found in the records, but nothing is too exciting. Recently, Chrome has been working on cool features like grouping search history into categories and trying reduce RAM usage. is also constantly being updated against phishing attempts and all kindsbut there is little fanfare in this particular update.
It’s nice that those who reported the bug are also mentioned next to the fix. Taking the time and effort to report a bug may seem a bit ungrateful, but it’s vital to improving any software. A little message to these people is a great way to say thank you for helping to make Chrome a little better for all of us. So thanks guys.

While the update isn’t all that impressive, moving to the triple digits definitely is. While many browsers like Firefox and Edge are also reaching the milestone, it’s still a hurdle, and not necessarily for the reasons you might think.
Future-proofing code isn’t always easy to spot, and numbers can be especially tricky. The Y2K fiasco is a great example of this, but it’s also why we’ve never seen a Windows 9 and jumped straight to 10. Much of the internet really wasn’t ready to have a browser with a three-digit update number and both. Chrome and Firefox had to work around the problem.
For now, I look forward to the next number-related catastrophe, in which humans never expect things to last as long as they do. It would be nice if Google could give Chrome a little birthday hat or something next time. Maybe they’re holding this until it gets to 1000.
