Let me explain, via the medium of this

Webkit is the rendering engine that Chrome is based on: it is open source and, as far as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is concerned, one of the... sorry... the most advanced browser in the world.
And Google have managed to take the provided rendering engine and fuck it up.
But worse than that, they haven't managed to fuck it up properly. If a particular property is not supported properly—as, for instance, neither
box-shadoware in IE—then the browser should ignore those properties.
Chrome recognises the properties and then comprehensively fucks them up. This is a serious issue, especially for the UI that I am working on, which makes extensive use of rounded corners and drop shadows.
It's a bit of a nightmare. Seriously, Google, get a fucking grip...
