The Google Chrome browser extension has been updated to version 0.21, which includes basic support for standard EPUB 3 fixed layout metadata, as per samples available here. The initial implementation has several limitations, including that the fixed layout decision is made on a per book basis rather than per spine item, so it only works if fixed layout is specified globally via the rendition:layout metadata property.
