Given that Google Chrome and Chromium come with their own equivalents of titlebars, how do I disable i3's titlebars. I want to minimize vertical space usage.

You can tell chromium to not provide its own title bar:

Settings → Appearance → Use system title bar and borders

To actually answer your question, use a for_windowstatement. See

I use:

for_window [class="^Chrome$" title=" - Chromium$"] border none

The update in Settings worked just fine for me!
