This is what +Google Chrome looks like on my 3600×1800 laptop screen when "high DPI" support is broken (as it is now). (*)

* – Not quite; I can set the default page zoom to 250% to make web pages appear at a decent legible size. But the address bar and other UI elements remain tiny, and the zoom factor screws up the layout of some pages, including Chrome's own "Report an issue" window.

Any of my Miata-racing friends want to re-body their race car (or build a new race car from the ground up)? I'm selling an almost-pristine '99 NB chassis + bodywork (bumper covers, fenders, hood, trunk lid, doors, mirrors, no hardtop; very minor dings and scratches) + subframes to make room for another project. No suspension or powertrain included though some additional parts may be purchased separately from the car's previous owner. $1500 or best offer.
