Using ExtJS 4.1, I have a single screen that I'm making as a prototype to see if we want to move forward with Sencha. It's got a header/footer and a tab panel in the middle. Without doing any of my own styling, just using out-of-the-box Sencha, it looks different in every single browser.
In Mac Firefox it looks the best, in Win 7 Chrome it's like all the pixels are twice as big (the widgets don't fit), on Windows 7 Firefox it looks ok, but some text/images are bunched up together whereas they aren't on Mac.

TLDR; this is going to be a hard sell if the out-of-the-box styling on a relatively simple page looks different on every browser. Isn't part of the reason to use a framework like this is that they take care of issues like this? Has anyone else had similar experiences? If so, is there a solution other than having my designers write custom code for every browser?

thanks.

If you look at the examples that come with the SDK, they are all written with ExtJS components. I can think of only 1 or 2 cases where browser specific styling is required. You might want to post an example of your simple page, it could be a problem with how you're constructing it.
