In Chromium, DOM event handlers get precedence (important for pages which
want to provide a custom find-in-page impl, or override ctrl-b ["toggle
bookmark bar"] to mean "bold text"), except for a small set of accelerators
relating to opening/closing/changing tabs/windows, which we don't send to
the renderer so that slow/hung renderers (or malicious pages, I suppose)
can't cause the user to be unable to instantly close the tab or switch to
another one.
