    Chrome is the bane of my existence when it comes to off-by-one-pixel rendering bugs. – Quentin Apr 14 '14 at 16:04
  • Hm, I can't reproduce this on Chrome unless I reduce the view size to 90% – Tim Stone Apr 14 '14 at 16:07
  • @Tim Stone: Might be an issue specific to Retina display Macs, in which case I'm inclined to classify this as a Chrome bug rather than a miscalculation in the SO stylesheet. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Apr 14 '14 at 16:09
  • I've just checked and I do have stackoverflow set to 90% zoom. I'd still file it as a Chrome scaling bug though. If someone wants to write an answer to that effect, I'll accept it. – Quentin Apr 14 '14 at 16:11

This is reproducible on Chrome on retina Mac on the non-default zoom level.

Start at default zoom (command 0) and then make the canvas render at 90% (command -) and you will see the rounding error / cropping. Zooming out to 50% doesn't show this cropping in each successive step. Magnifying the page also doesn't seem to have this artifact.

It might be the CSS is fine and the browser is to blame?
