@SwiftOnSecurity and only WebKit has no rounding errors when it comes to subpixel dimensions. All other rendering engines fail occasionally. @SwiftOnSecurity I misread it as 'Edible Blockchain' because of your corn obsession.

Pro tip: When using SVG sprites, make sure your viewBox is rounded to integer values. Float values get rounded _differently_ across browsersRight after IE11, Firefox is still the fucking buggiest browser when it comes to <fieldset> and <legend>. They can't fix this shit for years
