Here is a comparison of FF/Chrome/IE: http://imgur.com/jTkVSk5


What data are you wanting specifically from us to make this decision on? We want interop and since the overall size of all these inputs ends up being different I see that as a problem we need to get agreement on. Especially since Gecko has bugs raised on them.  I also sent an email regarding this in the past as I would love to get form controls to be interopable as we have numerous bugs around them. And platform designs aside, the exterior size should be consistent, so I am all for aligning on issues like this.

Let me know a little better on what data you're wanting and I'll get it.
