Chrome 6 downsizes

Chrome 6 default zoomWhen I opened up Chrome on my living room PC recently, I noticed everything seemed rather small.  It wasn’t my bleary-eyed morning at fault, Chrome 6 downsizes tabs and text making viewing pages at distance on my 1080p screen unbearable without constant zooming.  It’s near impossible to hit the New Tab button without super-precision.  The issue affects 3rd part apps as well.  The good news is, this a known issue with Chrome 6 and their devs are working on it.  Bookmark this Chromium page if you want to stay in touch with hoe they’re getting on with the fix.  Hopefully the fix will come with a default zoom like some other browsers.
