::-webkit-meter-inner-element is a proprietary WebKit CSS pseudo-element for selecting and applying styles to the outer containing element of a <meter> element. Additional markup to render the meter element as read-only.


::-webkit-meter-inner-element {
  /* ... */


Not part of any standard.


This will only work in WebKit and Blink-based browsers, such as Safari, Chrome, and Chromium-based versions of Edge.


<meter min="0" max="10" value="6">Score out of 10</meter>


meter {
  /* Reset the default appearance for -webkit- only */
  -webkit-appearance: none;

meter::-webkit-meter-inner-element {
  -webkit-appearance: inherit;
  box-sizing: inherit;
  border: 1px solid #aaa;
