Description Rune Lillesveen 2022-09-02 02:22:35 PDT
The :has() selector takes a <forgiving-relative-selector-list>[1], but a rule like :has(:unknown) {} is fully dropped in WebKit.

There is a failing wpt test in [2].

Note that implementing `:has` according to the spec breaks `:has` usage with jQuery for almost all versions in use in the wild: https://github.com/jquery/jquery/issues/5098
Comment 2 Antti Koivisto 2022-09-02 05:26:15 PDT
We currently do use forgiving parsing for :has() but still fail the selector if the selector lists ends up empty. That is

:has(:foo, bar) { }

is valid and parses to

:has(bar) { }


:has(:foo) is invalid.

I suppose this saves us from the jQuery problem.

See https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/7676#issuecomment-1235724730

The WebKit behavior still breaks some jQuery selectors. True, it doesn't break:
but it still breaks:
div:has(div, span:contains('Item'))
Maybe that latter kind of selectors is not used as often in the wild.

A full fix for future jQuery versions requires implementing bug 244808 so please have a look at this.

Comment 7 Karl Dubost 2022-09-15 09:35:06 PDT
Note that there are discussions about this behavior being beneficial currently, as it doesn't break jQuery.

See the discussion in https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/7676

oops hit return too early. 
Chrome 106 copies the behavior of Safari.

No longer valid with bug 249914.
