Description

2015 is coming, web technologies evolve day by day though browsers still have inconsistencies in very basic things: link states :)

Just upgraded to Chrome 39 and now this bugfix:

Issue 455223002: Make anchors mouse-focusable (Closed)
https://codereview.chromium.org/455223002

has landed in the stable release.

To actually see what happens:

  • click on any link
  • keep your mouse button pressed
  • see the link style while being clicked

Screenshots from different browsers:

That means all users will start seeing the focus style while links are being clicked, in all browsers.
Now, this is really a design choice, keeping the current style would allow to give a visual feedback that the link activation has been actually detected by the browser, on the other hand many users might just don't like that "flash" while clicking.
Anyway, it is possible to reset this very easily:

a:focus:active {
	-webkit-box-shadow: none;
	box-shadow: none;
}
