Comment #3 on issue 1287 by chipx86: Typing a comment causes the textarea  
to expand for every character typed

It's not just Review Board. There's actually a WebKit bug filed on this,  
and it was
fixed. Safari had the same problem and it went away once they took a new  
code drop.
Chrome has yet to upgrade to a version with the fix.

The bug is due to the method that Review Board and many other webapps use  
to provide
auto-resizable text fields, where it maintains a copy of the element  
off-screen and
uses it for sizing information. The bug in WebKit causes it to get the size  

We want to support Chrome pretty bad, but until this is fixed by them  
taking a new
code drop, we can't. I've looked into workarounds and there's just little  
we can do
without really complicating things, except to wait.
