    Question Center text in a select dropdown box in Edge

    Does anyone know how to center align text in a <select> dropdown box?

    I've tried using text-align-last (with browser specific iterations) with zero luck when it comes to Edge. It works fine and dandy with Chrome and Firefox.

    Hi there evo,

    form elements in general and the select element in particular,
    do not take kindly to attempts of customisation.

    "In the early days of the Web—around 1995—form controls were added
    to HTML in the HTML 2 specification.
    Due to the complexity of form widgets, implementors chose to rely on
    the underlying operating system to manage and render them."


    Why is it so hard to style form widgets with CSS?

    My suggestion, for what it's worth, would be leave the select element as it is.
    The only person who might be upset by this decision would be yourself.
