Chromium open-source project has hit version 60 last week and here are some miscellaneous facts about this number from Wikipedia:

- In darts, 60 (treble-twenty) is the highest score that can be achieved with a single dart.
- The highest obtainable level on World of Warcraft (not including the five latest expansions)
- In years of marriage, the diamond wedding anniversary
- The number of feet in the standard measurement tool to evaluate an automotive launch on a dragstrip, as the time taken to travel the first 60 feet (18 m) of the track.
- The Babylonian number system had a base of 60, inherited from the Sumerian and Akkadian civilizations, and possibly motivated by the large number of divisors that 60 has.
- It is a composite number, with divisors 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, and 60, making it a highly composite number.

The chrome team is experimenting in Dev Channel with improving the "Cast a tab" experience by forwarding directly the video content bitstream to the Chromecast device when a video is fullscreened. This "simple" feature allows to save battery and keep video quality intact.

You can give it a try today if you happen to have a Chromecast device nearby: Go to chrome://flags/#media-remoting, enable the highlighted flag, restart Chrome, go to https://vimeo.com, play a random video, click "Cast..." in the Chrome menu and fullscreen the video to enjoy that experience.
