The problem: HTML elements have inconsistent sizes across different browsers. The solution: Set box-sizing for all elements to border-box. A long-time bane for web developers, Internet Explorer did one thing right: It sized boxes properly.

When doing so you should be very careful about setting the actual percentage values. The percentage based width should result in a whole integer as the width. If not, you will end up with fractions as widths of containers leaving the rounding off to the browsers.
