Why do we still need tricks to autogrow ?  ↦

Chris Coyier:

Earlier this year I wrote a bit about autogrowing textareas and inputs. The idea was to make a <textarea> more like a <div> so it expands in height as much as it needs to in order to contain the current value. It’s almost weird there isn’t a simple native solution for this, isn’t it?

I’ll go a step further and say that this lack of a feature isn’t merely “almost weird”, it’s down right criminal. I’d love to champion this feature to the browser vendors/standards bodies, if one of y’all is willing to help me understand and navigate that process…
