The -webkit part is a prefix that states that this property probably only works with WebKit based browsers.

Some properties are unique to Chrome/Safari so you may need to write browser-specific CSS from time to time.


But those in the example above are deprecated/non-standard properties and should not be used.

Yea, very crossing browser. If you hate CSS that much, I still can recommend you another way by using the Yogurt CSS framework.

<!-- Example -->
<y class="clamp-3">
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Still hate it, try making your own styling dev tool.
