Here a link to how this works in Webkit:
 http://webkit.org/blog/363/styling-scrollbars/

With rich web apps this becomes more and more important since reimplementing all the scrollbar functionality in javascript is hard and many will fail to implement all functionality. on top of that its ugly. having css styles for scrollbars is much cleaner. 

Reproducible: Always
here is an example of using scrollbars in ui widgets:

"That being said, at least we do have the ability to do this kind of thing now. I hope that other browsers follow WebKit in this instance."
