I think, the webkit version is better than IE varsion but not ideal. Webmaster shall be possible to change position, shape and other properties of INTERNAL scrollbars. Internal means here: scrollbars of elements with set `overflow:auto` and `overflow:scroll` (including `<textarea/>`).  Without it website looks weird or webmaster must use DHTML JS to emulate scrollbars. No longer DHTML!

There shall be specified as little as needed pseudoelements for scrollbar to be possible style the scrollbars like mac, MSIE, EDGE and chrome versions (including mobile versions). **No `scrollbar` element but `::scrollbar-____` pseudoelements applicable to all elements.** 

Additionally emulation od scrollbars is hard due to lack of resize event for elements. There is only resize event for window.
