UI differences between Web apps in Firefox and Chrome

I was playing around with Chrome and Firefox, comparing memory usage and UI differences and noticed something in the Seesmic Web app I didn’t pick up on previously. Take a look at the scrollbars:

I think I am being rapidly disabused of this notion that all Web apps are the same in all modern browsers. Chrome clearly has some advantages, whether it be because developers are investing more into their Chrome Web apps or because Chrome supports things like these native looking scrollbars that other browsers don’t.

I find this somewhat disturbing …

  1. I’ve been noticing this same thing lately. For the past couple years I have been a hardcore Chrome user, but because of my job, I am forced to use Firefox. I actually really like Firefox 4, but I’m starting to notice those little differences in UI here and there. I’m not a developer, but I’m sure this has to drive them insane.

What do you think?
