CSS: Filtering and Distinguishing Google Chrome and Safari

 As body:nth-of-type(1) and body:first-of-type are supported by FireFox 3.5x, the hack that I wrote about in this post cannot be used anymore. You may try the following one, which targets only Google Chrome and Safari.

Personally, I avoid using CSS hacks, and when writing client code I always assume that anything can be done the “legal” way.

However, in most cases a hack is useful and needed, so here are two hacks (which are, in fact a valid CSS) that can be used to target and distinguish Google Chrome and Safari:

/* Google Chrome hack */
body:nth-of-type(1) .elementOrClassName
/* properties go here */

/* Safari hack */
body:first-of-type .elementOrClassName
/* properties go here */
