Google Chrome is 21 (Legal Drinking Age!!)

Chromium (where everything that’s Chrome starts) turned 21 the other day. V.21 is running on the Chromium nightly builds now.

The team usually makes a informative-funny intro to each version number and this time, they added this “In most USA states 21 is the drinking age.” :-) Here is rest of the 21 news.

In most USA states 21 is the drinking age.

A card game, also called vingt-et-un (French for “twenty-one”), pontoon, or blackjack
The number of spots on a standard cubical (six-sided) die (1+2+3+4+5+6), not so useful for blackjack, but perfect for craps
21 is the sum of the first six natural numbers (1+2+3+4+5+6=21).
Twenty-one is a Fibonacci number, a Harshad number, a Motzkin number, a triangular number and an octagonal number, as well as a composite number, its proper divisors being 1, 3 and 7.
