Styling text input caret

I want to style the caret of a focused

<input type='text'/>
. Specifically, the color and thickness.

Answer

If you are using a webkit browser you can change the color of the caret by following the next CSS snippet. I'm not sure if It's possible to change the format with CSS.

input,
textarea {
    font-size: 24px;
    padding: 10px;

    color: red;
    text-shadow: 0px 0px 0px #000;
    -webkit-text-fill-color: transparent;
}

input::-webkit-input-placeholder,
textarea::-webkit-input-placeholder {
    color:
    text-shadow: none;
    -webkit-text-fill-color: initial;
}

Here is an example: http://jsfiddle.net/8k1k0awb/
