I’m curious if anyone else is seeing this and if so, is there anything I can do about it? I’ve got my mac laptop right here with the newest version of Chrome and my Win7 desktop also with the latest version of Chrome. The padding of the menu is different.
On windows, it sits properly near the bottom of the menu bar. On OSX, the menu sits closer to the top. The problem I’m having is with the sub menu in that on OSX, there is a slight gap now which if someone doesn’t move quickly enough the sub-menu disappears. I can close the gap, but if I do, it overlaps a little in Windows which just doesn’t look as good.
It has nothing to do with the padding. It’s the differences in font size. You’ve based the height on font-size and padding. They will never be the same across platform and will even differ across browser on the same platform.
