Rounded corners are very commonplace in web design today. It is so common that the authors of the CSS 3 spec have decided to include it in the upcoming standard. Most browsers aren't supporting CSS 3 yet, but both the Gecko and Webkit rendering engines have had their own version of rounded corners CSS rules for a while now.
