Home Forums CSS IE10 mobile/touch :hover navigation problem Re: IE10 mobile/touch :hover navigation problem

Chris Coyier

In general, just totally avoid core functionality that is only shown on :hover.

In mobile webkit you are right, if the element has a :hover (but no href) it will stay in it’s :hover state after you tap it once.

That’s a bummer Window Phone 8 browser doesn’t do that… You might have to write some JavaScript that deals with tap events. Like when you tap it applies a class of “hover” and you reveal the menu with that class.
