I am using width:inherit for an extjs table for FF and IE.
Chrome doesn't work well with it and works with width:auto.
How do i get it to work for all browsers?

Set it to a fixed size for all browsers...

.whatever {
width: 200px;
}

You can also set width to a percentage.
width: 20%;

Edit: There are hacks for different browsers to run different code but they are not valid CSS

I wanted to use inherit (ff and ie) and auto for chrome. I tried using
.myclass {
-webkit-column-width: auto;
width: inherit;
}
but that didn't work.

I also tried :
.myclass {
-webkit-column-width: auto;
-moz-column-width: inherit;
}
That worked for chrome but not ff. It seems i have to use width instead of column-width.
