           Summary: My feedback is regarding radial-gradients. It's
                    absolutely entirely INSANE to not allow the developer
                    to specify a specific height and width for the circle
                    for a radial gradient. The circle is entirely
                    dependant on the width and height of the element it's

Comment:
My feedback is regarding radial-gradients.
It's absolutely entirely INSANE to not allow the developer to specify a
specific height and width for the circle for a radial gradient. The circle is
entirely dependant on the width and height of the element it's applied to,
using those STUPID "closest-side" etc shortcuts is so incredibly ridiculously
retarded... It gives the dev absolutely no control over the size. I'm trying
to create 2 elements, each with differing heights and widths, that will have
radial-gradients applied to them that align, so the 2 elements seem to be 1
element, imagine a rectangular button that shows a menu below it when clicked,
the menu is taller and wider than the button, but i cannot make the
radial-gradients line-up to look as if they're one element, because the damn
radial-gradient is dependant on the size and width of the actual element, even
if I specify a background-size... I just don't understand why someone would
draft this - having not been thought out... and it obviously wasn't thought
out.. OBVIOUSLY. Thanks. NicktheAndroid@gmail.com
