One of the issues we had with wkhtmltopdf was that we use Angular for our views, and we have a view for an invoice, and the ability to print it.

We wanted the same view to be passed into wkhtmltopdf to download it as PDF (with a couple of things omitted).

Unfortunately, the JS didn't execute properly, so you get a borked output.

End result was we render it, capture the HTML after render, and pipe that through to wkhtmltopdf.

Using chrome _should_ resolve that issue and let us just pass the page through.
