Chrome Lands GTK3 Theme Integration

Landing within Google's open-source Chromium browser and Chrome is initial GTK3 support for theme integration.

Issue #132847, which has been open since 2012 and pertains to GTK3 theme integration for Google's web-browser, has now been taken care of.

This initial GTK3 support should provide for better integration with modern Linux desktops, particularly if using a darker theme. With the support that landed in Git a few days ago, the GTK3 support is making use of deprecated APIs to make it easier to continue supporting both GTK2 and GTK3.

Embedded below is some comparison shots provided by a Chrome engineer in that bug report about the visible difference with the newly-landed GTK3 support.
