querySelectorAll() the best JavaScript function in the world!

Can querySelectorAll() be used to select all elements that have a specific CSS property or value applied to them (e.g., all elements with a color property set to red)?

  1. No, the `querySelectorAll()` function is not designed to work that way. It can only be used to select elements based on their HTML attributes, not their computed CSS properties.

    If you need to select all elements with a specific CSS property, you may need to use JavaScript to loop through all elements, identify their computed styles, and then evaluate the specific style property. This approach can be considerably slower and more complex than using `querySelectorAll()` for attribute-based selections.
