media query for chrome

I add a media query and it works in safari but not in chrome any ideas?

@media screen and (max-width: 800px) {
    .work ul li{
        width: 100%;
    }
}

Are you using sublime-text 3? Because for me media queries don't work with it.

Hi Carman, your text editor shouldn't have anything to do with code working or not.

That's what i thought too but if i copy and paste the code into another editor it works if i downgrade to sublime-text 2 it also works.

Adam - take a look at this codepen try it in Chrome and Safari it should make the li elements 100% wide and have a red background at < 800px.

Perhaps if you share additional code or make a codepen for your project someone could pinpoint the problem.

Well if you don't know why, you've got a problem. We call this cargo cult programming and it's a bad item
