How to enable WebGL for Chrome Beta on Android without rooting your device

A bit more detailed version of "patch-Chrome-APK" method by Fuji Daisuke posted as a comment on Toji's original blog post about getting WebGL working on rooted device.

How does it work?

Overview of the method:

Get the official Chrome Beta APK package.
Patch this APK so that it runs with enabled WebGL command line flag.
Replace the official Chrome Beta APK with your patched one.
A downside is that you will need to do this patching every time you want to get the updated version of Chrome Beta (updates come quite often so far).

Yikes, so easy (if your device is  rooted).
And it runs WebGL samples that fail with other browsers.
Goodbye Dolphin, Opera, Nightly  ::)
