How we built it

CSS -webkit-user-select:all

The user-select property enables authors to specify which elements in the document can be selected by the user and how. Chrome has supported only prefixed version: -webkit-user-select. With -webkit-user-select:all value, the content of the element must be selected atomically: If a selection would contain part of the element, then the selection must contain the entire element including all its descendants.
