           Summary: `resize` treats `width` and `height` as minimum

(Surprised this isn’t already reported but did a lot of searching and couldn’t find anything so filing just in case. Sorry if dupe!)

Yes, I know that this is technically allowed in css3-ui ("The user agent may restrict the resizing range to something suitable, such as between the original formatted size of the element, and large enough to encompass all the element's contents."), but this behavior is seriously crippling the usefulness of the resize property. 

A quick search reveals quite a few authors scratching their heads about this issue, for example (top 5):


Firefox only restricts it to the min-width/min-height, or if those are not set, to the dimensions of the resizer (roughly 15px by 15px).

Chrome does the same as WebKit, but it’s a confirmed bug they are about to fix: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?can=2&start=0&num=100&q=&colspec=ID%20Pri%20M%20Iteration%20ReleaseBlock%20Cr%20Status%20Owner%20Summary%20OS%20Modified&groupby=&sort=&id=94583
