Disable resizing textarea’s in Chrome and Firefox 4

When I was building a new form for a new project today I was having some problems with the resize option for textarea’s in Chrome (update: and Firefox 4). Every form with a textarea messes up the entire website layout by resizing this field.

Example:

textarea {
	resize: none;
}

I know this can be an usability thing for Chrome and Firefox users, but I think when you make your textarea large enough there should be no problem at all.
