Re: getting different result using IE and Chrome

Note that by default Chrome has a light blue focus indicator, while IE uses a dotted outline. The blue box in chrome is usually easier to see than the dotted line box in IE, so you may be experiencing the loss of focus in IE due to difficulty of seeing the dotted outline.
