This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The -webkit-animation Boolean CSS media feature is a Chrome extension whose value is true if vendor-prefixed CSS animations are supported.

Note: This media feature is only supported by WebKit. If possible, use an @supports feature query instead.


@media (-webkit-animation) {
  /* CSS to use if animations are supported */


Not part of any specification. Apple has a description in Safari CSS Reference.
