    Is there a way to remove the scrollbars from a box generated by the
    <textarea> tag?.. and if anyone knows why is <textarea> box renderd in
    different size in different browsers(Ie,FF).

    Yes, but it would be unfriendly to tell about them. You would either make
    the textarea elements less useable to users, or you would continue abuse
    of textarea for something else than data input. So let's conclude with
    the statement that it cannot be done in HTML and that you need to explain
    what you ultimately wish to achieve - maybe _that_ is implementable.

    Umm... Why are cars different? Why are people different?

    There are some oddities in textarea rendering, but they are related to
    the common (and quite understandable) default of rendering them in a
    monospace font. And that font might have characteristics that make it
    look bigger than "normal" fonts of the same size, so browsers may have
    defaults that reduce the font size. This implies that if you change the
    font face only, you might be surprised. But it also means that different
    browsers do such tuning in different ways.

    Do you mean people browsing the web, may not all like the same thing,
    and they may have different ideas about what they like to do on the web?

    No.

    Because they are different browsers, therefore they have different
    built-in display settings.
