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;





<a href="https://example.com">External link</a><br>
<a href="#">Internal target link</a><br>
<a>Placeholder link (won't get styled)</a>


a:any-link {
  border: 1px solid blue;
  color: orange;

/* WebKit browsers */
a:-webkit-any-link {
  border: 1px solid blue;
  color: orange;
