Other Chromium-based browsers

The manufacturers of Chromium-based browsers now have to follow and update their browsers as well. After the update for Chrome 99 on March 25, Microsoft (Edge), Brave and Vivaldi reacted quickly and provided updates the following day. Opera 85.0.4341.28 was released on March 29, only a few hours before Chrome 100.

Chrome 100.0.4896.58 for Android and Chrome 100.0.4896.56 for iOS are also available.

On Windows, for example, you can check the installed output by clicking on the three vertical dots in the top right and then on Help, About Google Chrome. This also triggers the update process, which actually runs automatically.
