Chrome is really not consistent when displaying sprite,
i found that Firefox actually is more consistent (sprite/tiledbackground always looks sharp).
it could be a graphic driver....maybe ??
Out of curiosity i run a test on Chrome vs Firefox, and true enough:
- on my desktop, a Win XP machine with latest Nvidia driver,
* in Chrome Sprite looks blurry while TiledBackground looks sharp. (while the post earlier mention the opposite where tiled background looks blurry & sprite looks sharp)
* Firefox both looks sharp.
- on my laptop, Win 7 with ATI graphic (latest driver), both looks sharp (on Chrome & Firefox)
I'm not sure if this is ATI vs Nvidia thing, or it's Win XP vs Win 7, because i only have 2 machine to test <img src="smileys/smiley17.gif" border="0" align="middle">
When the sprite blurry, it looks like this:

I slightly modified the sprite so the size is 64x64 just to see if it fix the problem (it's not):
Web Test (Try it on Chrome & Firefox to see the different):
