A Cross Browser* and Standards Compliant Custom ScrollBar Script by Hesido

I have tried to style the scrollbars through CSS. I used
scrollbar-base-color: #009966;
scrollbar-track-color: #009966;
scrollbar-face-color: #ffff99;
scrollbar-highlight-color: #009966;
scrollbar-3dlight-color: #009966;
scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #009966;
scrollbar-shadow-color: #009966;
scrollbar-arrow-color: #009966;

But browsers like Firefox and Safari was not able to get the this styling.
I tried to find solution for this, but was not successful until I got this site : hesido.com.
This site helps for styling scrollbar using javascript with examples and source code.
