offset() and position() return wrong values in Chrome when page is zoomed

offset() and position() return true pixel values in Google Chrome at all page zoom levels.

In contrast, in FF, IE and Opera they return values compensated for the actual page zoom.

This is because getBoundingClientRect is buggy in webkit (same issue exists in Safari 4). I'm guessing it's returning the rect after the zoom has been applied.

To fix the issue, avoid getBoundingClientRect in webkit.

I am experiencing this issue too using:

Comment 7 pretty much sums up the problems that I've been having with even the latest versions of jQuery. The behavior is slightly different but just as problematic when zoomed out. I've noticed that browsers using the Webkit engine are affected, and IE and Firefox have no such issues.

I am experiencing this problem too - with Chrome version 23.

Same as comment 6 & 7

Adam, thanks for filing the WebKit bug. You have a typo in the title: getComputerdStyle.
