​I would recommend styling the select boxes, here is an example of how CSS
can style them:
​http://bavotasan.com/2011/style-select-box-using-only-css/

The code should be something like the following:
<div class="styled-select">
   <select>
    ...
</div>

​and the css:
#lang #os, #ver {
   background: transparent;   width: 268px;
   padding: 5px;   font-size: 16px;
   line-height: 1;   border: 0;
   border-radius: 0;
   height: 34px;   -webkit-appearance: none;
   }​
