Re: [dev] [wmii] Chromium always starts as a floating window

Thanks! That works like a charm - it's always the simple things...

Out of curiosity, what is it about that setting that causes wmii to
make it float initially? It seems as though wmii ignores the "Hide
system title bar and use compact borders" setting and surrounds it
with the wmii border regardless, so why isn't wmii also consistent
with the floating behavior?
