> Yeah very good explanation. For chrome, you can try chrome://version/ which
is just an indicative revision (as pointed by R. Niwa i.e. X revision) that
was picked up inside building the chrome. But this is just for the
reference revision number. It will have a lot of other missing pieces added
as mentioned above.
