I just redid the tests to make sure:

Rebooted with the newest version installed, opened Chromium and got italic.
Downgraded, rebooted, Chromium again, no issues.
Upgraded, rebooted, Chromium and italic again.

Not every page is displayed in italic.

If there is anything else that I could testo/do to help just let me know.
