"Name" input field is not grey or sized like the other input boxes, problem?

My code is ok from what I can tell, is this just a bug?

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
        <title>Sign Up Form</title>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">
        <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Nunito:400,300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">
      <form action="index.html" method="post">

          <h1>Sign Up</h1>

          <label for="name">Name:</label>
          <input type="type" id="name" name="user_name">
          <input type="email" id="email" name="user_email">
          <input type="password" id="password" name="user_password">

          <textarea id="bio" name="user_bio"></textarea>

          <button type="submit">Send Comment</button>

have you tried make it an Input field text and checked the CSS values?

<input type="type" id="name" name="user_name">


<input type="text" id="name" name="user_name">
