13 years after its first release, Chrome has reached the three-digit version. Google has released the Chrome 100 late last night 29 March 2022, on the stable channel for all supported desktops, Windows, Mac and Linux.
The new version brings a new logo, 28 security enhancements, new features for developers and more.
So we have the Chrome 100 on the Stable channel, Chrome 101 as the new Beta and Chrome 102 as the Canary version.
Google celebrates Chrome 100 with a new icon, more web application tools and more:
For the first time since 2014, Chrome has a new icon. As you can see from the image above, it does not bring any significant change. Google removed some of the shadows for a simpler look.
In Chrome for Android, iPhone and iPad, Google has added a "Lite Mode" feature to save data.
The new version 100 brings a new multi-screen window placement API to the desktop Chrome desktop. This API helps web applications detect when someone has connected multiple screens to their profile.
The new version has a user-agent that provides less information on websites and a newer, much more secure "User-Agent Client Hints API". This new API has been created for less incompatibilities with sites that sometimes have glitches. Yes User agent now uses a three-digit number in the browser version:
Mozilla / 5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit / 537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome / 100.0.4896.60 Safari / 537.36
The new Chrome also brings new DevTools for developers. For additional information see here
