Setting opacity below 1 on icons results in a clipping of icons'/indicators' edge in Chrome under certain conditions.
There has been articles about Chrome and similar misbehaviour in Firefox.
I'm pretty sure, that I've come across such misbehaviour in production, but currently only one occasion is reproducible for me: Demo's icon section's IndicatorWidget in Chrome 62.0.3202.94 on Mac OS X on Retina display MacBook resolution. As soon as I switch to a different, external monitor (with higher resolution) the mis-rendering is gone as well.
Promoting elements with opacity property to a GPU composite layer seem to be a possible way out of this.
