cssQuery is a JavaScript Library used to query HTML elements via CSS selectors. cssQuery was the first publicly available library to support versions 1–3 of the CSS standard, and provides separate libraries for each.[1] The library works on all modern browsers[2] and influenced the design of the jQuery library.[3][4]
