    I have a webapp that I’m working on using my mac. I really like how it looks with the mac os defaults (rounded form elements, buttons, etc) but on a windows machine it looks terrible. Anyone have any suggestions of how I could make it so windows machines see it like a mac view using the css?

    I’m not sure I understand. CSS doesn’t care (for the most part) about what OS you are viewing a website in.

    Are you more referring to the difference between Chrome/Safari and Internet Explorer?

    I think he’s referring to the defaults
    Some unstyled elements mimic the style of the OS they’re on

    I assume he’s talking about select menus – that’s really the only thing I would say is blatantly different. Forms, I guess Search type?

    If you style your elements, the default style is dismissed. So just style a element to look like the default on Mac and that will be displayed the same on windows.

    Ah yes – I missed the mention of form elements, nice catch guys.

    @alexmccabe : unless I misunderstand, the default Windows button in that pen isn’t absolutely default.

    Example: in my Windows (Chrome, IE and Firefox), a default button has square corners but in your pen, it has rounded corners.

    Makes sense? I’m on Win 8 by the way.
