Making text unselectable is an easy task. All we have to do is to disable the selectivity of the text on our webpage for all the browsers that the webpage is likely to be loaded on. There are some settings/commands used in CSS which are used for enabling/disabling functionalities on specific browsers. Like to disable a certain functionality on our webpage say disabling the selectivity of the text, we will have to disable it for all the available browsers separately else, it will not be applicable on all the browsers.
