CSS: Change text selection color

You can change the color for text selection via CSS, using the ::selection and ::-moz-selection pseudo-elements.

Adding this to your Sass will make all text selections use a red background:

Copy
::selection background-color: #f00 ::-moz-selection background-color: #f00

Unfortunately, those can't be combined into "::selection, ::-moz-selection". Doing so will have no effect.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
