Much of the big pieces that I wanted since 2007 has been laid in the website foundation. I've been designing it on Linux web browser Iceweasel (an old Firefox clone). And I've looked at the website on Windows browsers IE9, Firefox 5 and Chrome. None of them really look exactly as what I've done on Iceweasel.
But if I had to say which is closest to the original design. Then Firefox 5 would get 95% and Chrome 85% and IE9 not so much.

Firefox is the one that's closest to the original but not a 100%.

2. The red heart at the footer doesn't have the same size as in Iceweasel. IE9 and Firefox made it look too small. Chrome made it look too big. Not happy with any of the browsers on this part.

3. The left bar flyout-menus is ok with IE9 and Firefox. But Chrome displays a weird water reflection effect that I didn't intend with my original vision on Iceweasel.

I'm not really happy with any of the three browsers but I had to pick a direction and Firefox seems to be the one for me.
