How to write specific CSS for mozilla, chrome and IE

Question by Sussagittikasusa

What would be the CSS conditional statement you can use to include specific CSS for IE, Mozilla, Chrome.

If IE  
#container { top: 5px; }  

If Mozilla 
#container { top: 7px; }    

If Chrome  
#container { top: 9px; }

What would be the respective ‘If’s’ ?

For that

  • You can scan user Agent and find out which browser, its version. Including the OS for OS specific styles
  • You can use various CSS Hacks for specific browser
  • Or Scripts or Plugins to indentify the browser and apply various classes to the elements

Using PHP

See

Then then create the dynamic CSS file as per the detected browser
