UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_2) AppleWebKit/537.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/26.0.1406.0 Safari/537.30

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. In terminal enter:
    defaults write -g NSTextInsertionPointBlinkPeriod -int 100000000
    defaults write -g CursorBlink -string 0
2. Re-login?, restart browser 
3. Open any webpage with input/textarea fileds and try to type some text
4. See if cursor is blinking after you stop typing

What is the expected behavior?
Cursor should stop blinking in text fields (like it does on linux with `gtk-cursor-blink = 0`)

What went wrong?
Cursor is still blinking in text fields

Did this work before? No

Clearly a webkit problem, it also affects Safari and webviews inside apps (bug filed: )

I agree. Blink should respect system setting for cursor blink interval.
