Google Chrome 15 for High DPI display

* Update - in version 17 Google finally have added ability to set zoom factors like 125% and 150%. This makes Chrome perfectly suitable for High DPI browsing out of the box. This article is kept for historical reasons only. *
* Update 2 - some people getting blurry Chrome 17 out of the box on High DPI displays. To solve this, open Task Manager, right click on Chrome.exe process, Properties, Compatibility, tick "Disable Display Scaling on High DPI", restart Chrome *

Previously I have posted an article about common problems with and choosing the best web browser for High DPI displays.
Since then, Google addressed situation somewhat - they've introduced some experimental default zoom setting support to Chrome. However, I still prefer some alterations kept from my previous patches, so I am still making customized versions.
