If you are uncertain what "browser hacks" are, "An Introduction to Browser-Specific Hacks"sitepoint-browser-specific-css-hacks explains it well.
This rule uses stylehacks to detect the hacks. Then, in the spirit of stylelint, it tells you that you've done something wrong. If instead you would like to automatically remove browser hacks, use stylehacks directly.
stylehacks is only compatible with standard CSS syntax, and does not support nested properties nor custom property sets.
Bugs and feature requests should be reported on the stylehacks issue trackerstylehacks-issues.


npm install stylelint-no-browser-hacks


Add stylelint-no-browser-hacks to your stylelint config plugins array, then add rules you need to the rules list. Note that the rule is namespaced with plugin/.
Like so:
// .stylelintrc
	"plugins": [
	"rules": {
		// ...
		"plugin/no-browser-hacks": [true, {
            browsers: [
                "last 2 versions",
                "ie >=7"
		// ...



Defaults to the browserslist default, which targets modern browsers.
The following patterns are considered warnings:
a { color/*\**/: pink\9; }

As this hack targets IE7-8.

Optional secondary options

browsers: "browserslist string"

A string interpreted by browserslist that designates precisely which browsers you wish to support. Something like "> 1%, last 2 versions, ie >= 8". For details about the syntax (which is the same as when using Autoprefixer, by the way), please read the browserslist documentationbrowserslist.
If you set browsers: [ "last 2 versions", "ie >=7" ] the hack above is allowed.
