#14135 closed bug (patchwelcome)

:target selector does not work with .ready in Chrome

Create following HTML file. Open it in Chrome and any other browser and append hashtag #foo to the file name

Result: In Chrome, text will be blue (no class appended to #foo)

In other browsers it will be red (#foo has class bar)

		.bar {
			color: red !important;
		:target {
			color: blue;
	<div id="foo">Hello, world</div>
	<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
		$(function() {

When executed from console, $(":target").addClass("bar") works

Looks like in Chrome only it will work with $(window).load, but not with $(document).ready

Seems like this is a cantfix limitation unless someone has some ideas for fixing it.

Perhaps a related or duplicate of the bug here: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=89165

We could defer to Sizzle in Chrome, but we'd need a support test, and I'd be suspicious of a support test involving urls. I'd welcome a patch that could implement a feature test that didn't conflict with page scrolling, pushState history, etc.
