As the last Chrome update didn't fix the text display (and Internet Explorer doesn't like some Flash stuff), I've gone back to Firefox and it's very nice!

it looks like v16 has messed up the linear gradient feature...the angle at which a gradient is displayed is no longer correct

try this css:
html { background: black; background-image: -moz-linear-gradient( 90deg, #0F2D40 0%, #194759 30%, #296B73 50%, #3E8C84 80%, #D8F2F0 100%); background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient( 90deg, #0F2D40 0%, #194759 30%, #296B73 50%, #3E8C84 80%, #D8F2F0 100%); background-image: -o-linear-gradient( 90deg, #0F2D40 0%, #194759 30%, #296B73 50%, #3E8C84 80%, #D8F2F0 100%); background-image: linear-gradient( 90deg, #0F2D40 0%, #194759 30%, #296B73 50%, #3E8C84 80%, #D8F2F0 100%); background-repeat:no-repeat; background-attachment:fixed; }

it displays differently under v16 than before...Chrome displays it the way previous Firefox versions did
