We use the appearance property to style an element according to the platform-native style of the user’s operating system.

Syntax

The syntax of CSS appearance property is as follows −

Selector {
   appearance: /*value*/;
   -webkit-appearance: /*value*/; /*for Safari and Chrome */
   -moz-appearance: /*value*/; /*for Firefox */
}

Example

The following examples illustrate CSS appearance property.

         }
         input[type=number]:hover {
            background-color: #e3f5a1;
         }
         input::-webkit-inner-spin-button {
            -webkit-appearance: none;
