The good:
Using CSS "-webkit-appearance: none;" for <select> **removes** the arrow
and thus becomes **smaller** on web browsers like Chrome/Chromium/Safari
and also on a GTK(2) build of wxWebView [1].

The bad:
In the GTK3 build wxWebView [1] the arrow is **hidden instead of
removed** and thus the <select> has extra width for the arrow which it
does not show.

The ugly:
Since i am using a series of <select> items in a row like a ODO meter in
a vehicle but every digit click-able to change, so for example 10 in a
row look like "1234567890" while the same on webkitgtk3 is like  "1 v 2
v 3 v 4 v 5 v 6 v 7 v 8 v 9 v".

The solution:
??? don't have one yet, please advise...

OK  -> GTK+2 -> libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 2.4.9-1~deb8u1/2.4.11-3
NOK -> GTK+3 -> libwebkitgtk-3.0-0 2.4.9-1~deb8u1/2.4.11-3
Running Debian 8.x (Jessie) and 9.x (Stretch), so more version details
