How we built it

-webkit-appearance:none for METER element

Web authors had no way to completely disable UA rendering of METER element, and were unable to render them with pure CSS. This feature is to implement the standard appearance:none behavior for METER element as -webkit-appearance:none. -webkit-appearance:none removes UA rendring at all, and renders the content of <meter> element.
