Among the ramifications of being a front-end Web developer is that we’re
constantly introduced to unusual new quirks from Web browsers. Today,
we bring you a strange rendering quirk from some of the least-quirky
browsers. We've observed it on iPad's Safari and on newer versions of
Firefox for the Mac. Need a refresher on how browsers affect the way a
page displays? Read our recent post on Web pages.
Identifying the problem
We’ve noticed when we zoom in or out on a Web page to a ratio that isn't
a multiple of two (such as 150 percent or 66 percent), the site will
sometimes have strange lines running through it. Sometimes not. What's
going on? The browser is rounding.
