Standard CSS Hacks To Detect Chrome and Safari (Together)

These are my legal CSS Hacks for fixing web browser quirks or outright bugs. Please enjoy, I have been working on them for years. May it help you if you need them. Please read here first: [What are these CSS Hacks Anyway?] Then check my [Live CSS Hacks Test Page] and also [] where I sent new hacks and test submissions for the site.

These two I did not create, but are worth mentioning.

This one is an ‘old faithful’ CSS webkit hack, media query based:

/* Chrome and Safari (Any) */

@media screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio:0) {
    .selector {

Recently there has been another, a one-liner that also does this… and rather effectively:

/* Chrome and Safari (Any) */

.selector:not(*:root) { property:value; }

Both of these were posted (not by me) to, but I am including them here to go with my others of the same types.
