Doing it with style

CSS DEMOSTabs with inner and outer radii - no graphics

Date : 18th September 2011

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.

Plain Tabs

Tabs with top border

Tabs with full border


Plain unordered lists with no extra markup and simple styling to add both outer and inner radii.

The second set of tabs uses newly introduced border fadeout to apply a border to the top and bottom of the radii that fades at the vertical component.

The border is interpreted correctly in IE9+, Firefox 3+, Safari and Opera. Chrome is the only browser that does not yet support this.

IE9 does not support the background gradient.

I have purposely produced these large tabs so that you can clearly see the radii.

23rd September 2011 - Full border version 3 added.
