Description Kenneth Rohde Christiansen 2012-03-16 10:51:08 UTC
Example: innerWidth is not consistent across webkit browsers (desktop + mobile + half mobile browsers like desktop safari).

Spec: The innerWidth attribute must return the viewport width including the size of a rendered scroll bar (if any).

Quickmode defines the current behavior as: The dimensions of the viewport (interior of the browser window) -

Quirkmode for mobile says: Dimensions of the visual viewport in CSS pixels.

The pinch zoom and double-tap to zoom is what make the difference and it is all due to the definition of viewport being rather value in comparison with scale support.
