When an HTML element is 'focused' (currently selected/tabbed into), many browsers (at least Safari and Chrome) will put a blue border around it.

For the layout I am working on, this is distracting and does not look right.

<input type="text" name="user" class="middle" id="user" tabindex="1" />

Firefox does not seem to do this, or at least, will let me control it with:

border: x;

If someone can tell me how IE performs, I would be curious.

Getting Safari to remove this little bit of flare would be nice.



In your case, try:

input.middle:focus {
    outline-width: 0;

Or in general, to affect all basic form elements:

button:focus {
    outline: none;

In the comments, Noah Whitmore suggested taking this even further to support elements that have the contenteditable attribute set to true (effectively making them a type of input element). The following should target those as well (in CSS3 capable browsers):

[contenteditable="true"]:focus {
    outline: none;

Although I wouldn't recommend it, for completeness' sake, you could always disable the focus outline on everything with this:

*:focus {
    outline: none;

Keep in mind that the focus outline is an accessibility and usability feature; it clues the user into what element is currently focused.

This border is used to show that the element is focused (i.e. you can type in the input or press the button with Enter). You can remove it with outline property, though:

textarea:focus, input:focus{
    outline: none;

You may want to add some other way for users to know what element has keyboard focus though for usability.

Chrome will also apply highlighting to other elements such as DIV's used as modals. To prevent the highlight on those and all other elements as well, you can do:

*:focus {
    outline: none;

?? Accessibility warning

Please notice that removing outline from input is an accessibility bad practice. Users using screen readers will not be able to see where their pointer is focused at. More info at a11yproject

Basically, set a timeout on each keyup. If there's already a timeout running, clear it and set another. The DoSearch() function will only run when the timeout is allowed to complete without being reset by another keyup (i.e., when the user has stopped typing for 1000ms).

var timeout = null;
$('#SearchInputBox').on('keyup', function () {
    var that = this;
    if (timeout !== null) {
    timeout = setTimeout(function () {
    }, 1000);

This is a simple fix, Safari does not support the transition from pixels to percentages. If you change your hover styles from 50% to 100px you will see that your transitions will work smoothly.

.all a:hover img {
    -webkit-border-radius: 100px;
    -moz-border-radius: 100px
    border-radius: 100px;


You may want to set them to any value that is double the height and width of your images to ensure they will always be rounded when hovered.

I have answered this question before. It is a webkit bug.

Add this code to the same selector you are adding border radius too


Old answer source flexslider border-radius does not wrap image in Chrome, Safari, but will in Firefox
