Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The :any-link CSS pseudo-class selector represents an element that acts as the source anchor of a hyperlink, independent of whether it has been visited. In other words, it matches every <a>, <area>, or <link> element that has an href attribute. Thus, it matches all elements that match :link or :visited.

/* Selects any element that would be matched by :link or :visited */
:any-link {
  color: green;
}

Syntax
