In this simple post, you will learn how to override the default text selection color with CSS.

Styling this pseudo-element is great for matching user-selected text to your site's color theme.

To have this effect or change use the ::selection selector to override the default text selection color provided by the browser.

Tutorial
copy

/*For old Firefox*/
::-moz-selection{
  color:#fff;
  background:#00796b;
}
/*code for Firefox above*/

::selection{
  color:#fff;
  background:#00796b;

Note::

The ::selection pseudo-element applies styles to the part of a document that has been highlighted by the user.
