[Corion]: Ouch. I just learned something about Chrome - the "version numbers" are not really feature numbers... Chrome 62 still gets new features even though Chrome 64 is out and Chrome 65 is the dev version
[erix]: why ouch? Something to be said for that ,surely?
LanX is a dev version
[marto]: That reminds me, I made some notes somewhere with regard W::M::C, I'll get round to a PR when I've time to flesh it out
[Corion]: erix: But that makes for fun bug hunting. "What version of Chrome are you running?" "v62". "I also run v62 and it works on my machine". :-(
[Corion]: marto: Great, looking forward to the PR!
