== [cssom-view] Should browser zoom affect screen.width? ==
In Firefox and IE/Edge, the browser's zoom level affects 
`screen.width` (so that as you increase the zoom, the reported value 
of `screen.width` decreases). In Chrome and Safari, it does not.

The [spec](https://drafts.csswg.org/cssom-view/#dom-screen-width) 

> The width attribute must return the width of the output device, in 
CSS pixels.

My reading of this is that, since it says "in CSS pixels", Firefox and
 IE/Edge's behaviour is correct (since zooming in decreases the number
 of CSS pixels that fit onto the screen).

Due to the implementation divergence, I'd like to double check: is 
this the intended interpretation?
