Facebook Like Alert/Popup Box with Jquery & CSS

Facebook like popup/alert box is primary choice of all web developers to show messages to their users. Although it seems a difficult task but a little CSS and Jquery can ease your life a lot. I have developed an alert box similar to that of Facebook. But its curvy corners are visible only in Mozilla Firefox. If someone can make its corners round in all web browsers, please inform me. Now lets watch it working.
