It works for me. However, it doesn't seem to respect the set DPI as for
other applications. I am using a DPI of 144 (96*1.5). All applications
are able to use this DPI and scale texts and icons correctly. However,
it seems that Chromium is using a 2x scale. I suppose it doesn't account
for a non integer scale.

Looking at the source code, I see that this is not the case. In fact, it
doesn't use gtk-xft-dpi but tries to be clever about screen
dimension. This is fine for a desktop, but I think that for a HiDPI
laptop, this is not quite the right thing to do. There is a TODO about
this in the code, so it may be get updated in the future.

I found this:

But this doesn't seem related.
