CSS Question

Why does Chrome require the -webkit- prefix for CSS cursors?

The cursor spec is pretty old. Am I missing something in terms of cursors that I should be accounting for in my CSS other than just prefixing the cursor value?

Edit: I'm referring specifically to the "grab" property and others like it, which require "-webkit-grab". Sorry for the confusion.

Answer

The grab value is new to css-ui-3. This was during a time when anything that was new and experimental came in the form of vendor prefixes, including values. I'm not sure why Chrome hasn't still unprefixed it yet considering Firefox 27, released two and a half years ago, now supports this value unprefixed. Microsoft Edge also supports it unprefixed, though Internet Explorer does not.
