Well, let me rephrase that. I just noticed for the first time that the text box for Quick Reply and Advanced Reply are resizable in Safari and Chrome. IE 8 shows an unusable grey'd out scroll bar, while Firefox and Opera have nothing.

I suppose I should use some of the alternative browsers a bit more some time. Just wanted to comment on it because I thought it was pretty cool and another example about how cross browser compatibility still sucks.

I noticed it a while ago on Chrome. It's pretty neat.

I'm on the latest version of Opera for Ubuntu right now, I see a grayed-out scroll bar on the right side of the textarea.

I've long enjoyed the little buttons VBulletin has that increase and decrease the height of the textareas. I couldn't tell you how many times I've used that little feature on VBulletin forums. :D

Those are definitely browser features and nothing to do with Ozzu. I just checked it out using Chrome, I like it!

It appears it will be added to Firefox 3.7

Apparently if you don't want it you can disable it with CSS, but resize isn't valid with CSS 2.1 but does exist with CSS 3
Code: [ Select ]
textarea {
  resize: none;
}
  1. textarea {
  2.   resize: none;
  3. }

Nice... That would be a good feature. Is CSS available on all browsers?

Wait, did I just ask that? I meant that resize CSS not the actual CSS :lol: (I hope I'm making sense here...) The CSS resize attribute/whatever it's called...

By the way, why not make the quick reply the full length of that div?
