This is an intentional feature which improves usability; see <http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/browser/trunk/WebCore/rendering/RenderListBox.cpp#L207>.

No, this is a left alone problem that decreases usability.
If a webpage author wants to set his <select> box size to something smaller than 4, that's what he wants.
Please fix this!!!
The Chromium Bug is:
This is what you intend? This makes NO sense! Because of this behavior, I can not use the select control where I want to on my page because I can not afford the unnecessary vertical space. What possible advantage can there be to the user (me) he wants 2 or 3, and he gets 4? If I want 4, can't I ask for 4? THIS MAKES NO SENSE! What are you thinking? "This is an intentional feature which improves usability"? How?! Your link only confirms that the behavior is intended; it doesn't explain how it "improves usability." And, no explanation is possible.
Use CSS? So far, I don't see how to duplicate the functionality; but even if that's possible, this should be FIXED!
Why Webkit Why
the standard states how the select box should behave. anything other than this is not standards compliant.
sometimes a size of 2 or 3 is needed.
but you just say "sorry we know what you want better than you do so tough"
yes i know that size 2 is broken in geko based browsers (scrollbar dissapears) but its still closer to standard compliant than forcing the size to 4
"This is an intentional feature which improves usability"!!
that's just unbelievable!
frankly, you really think we are going to believe you?
that's just insulting..
well done to turn your incapacity into a "new feature".. wow.. you're great devs..
shame on you
Duping to a newer bug that has more progress and no unhelpful comments.
