@tabatkins Sorry, I don't think I follow. Maybe my use of *exactly* was too broad. I just meant in the aspect of the size that the unit represents.

A viewport unit should always be usable like you said, of course. The definition of "viewport" is the issue though. To website developers, it *should* mean 1% of the **available** space I'm given. If a browser draws a scrollbar in that space, it is no longer **available**, thus the value of `1vw` should adjust accordingly.
