    Background Size CSS and Browser Compatibility

    Hi Everyone,
    I have a website with a background image. I want this background image to shrink/enlarge horizontally only according to the browser's size.

    Here is the CSS I have:
            background-repeat: no-repeat;
            background-size: 100%;
            -o-background-size:100%; /* Opera */
            -webkit-background-size:100%; /* Safari */
            -khtml-background-size:100%; /* Konqueror */
    This code works in Firefox, Opera and Safari, but in Chrome it is enlarging it vertically too. Is there a special CSS I have to use to get it to appear right in Chrome? According to Chrome supports background-size.

    Thanks in advance.

    The property you're looking for is still background size, but you're going to want to use the value cover, like so:
    background-size: cover;
