I don't know why there would be a difference between Safari and Chrome,
but I did some testing of font sizing across as many browsers as I could
a few months ago. I noticed that Safari tended to "round down" fractions
of a percent. So theoretical (calculated) percents may produce the effect
you notice.

I found that rounding up any fraction of 1% to the next
higher integer (or next .01em) to work well cross-browser. 

This may not be your issue, but hope it helps.
