The background-clip property specifies the painting area of the background image or background color.

The default value is:

background-clip: border-box;

This means that the background is clipped to the border box, i.e. the background is visible under the element’s border.

Other values for background clipping:

padding-box – clips the background at the outside edge of the element’s padding, i.e. the background is not visible under the element’s border

content-box – clips the background at the edge of the content box, i.e. does not apply the padding or border

If you are still not sure how to use the border-, padding- and content-box values, take a look at the box-sizing property example.

Browser Support

Let’s put it simply: IE9+. Polyfills for IE8 do not even exists and no wonder - it’s hard to find a situation where they would be necessary.
