Apart from hosting our code, GitHub's main attraction is using it as a collaborative tool. CSS Selectors and Pseudo Selectors and browser support This page has not been updated for some time and some of the browser versions are obsolete - I'm working on a better format for the page, so check back every now and then :) The following is a range of CSS tests of the most common browsers' support for selectors and pseudo selectors.
