Square Search Boxes in WebKit

By  on  

The new INPUT type of search is a nice semantic addition given to us under the HTML5 label. Unfortunately this element isn't ultra-stylable within WebKit. Here's a quick trick I've found to make input[type=search] elements look like their basic text counterparts:

input[type=search] {
	-webkit-appearance: textfield;

Using -webkit-appearance: textfield allows developers to use input[type=search] elements that appear as a standard square INPUT. This is especially useful when looking to add a border to your INPUT element!
