Google Chrome has issues with selecting multi-line material in text boxes.

Audio:

I came across this question today that someone actually downvoted. I could delete it, but perhaps just removing the dot net portion of it will suffice.

Selecting several lines in firefox is easy.

Delete, and done.

Let's try it out in chrome. Oh for skeet's sake, why can't I select a simple grouping of lines? Maybe... if I just snug it up right there...

Hm. Not quick and easy.

But, you know, it's google, they are probably just following ... uh... no, internet explorer shows the same behavior, making it easy to select several lines of material.

Google, please fix Chrome. This isn't right. It may be technically correct to select every element in the dom between the start and end selection points, but this is wrong. Wrongity wrong wrong wrong.
