                <h1>Native Sharing Web Component with Shadow DOM</h1>
<p>This web component uses the <a href="">Web Share API</a> to share a link. The sharing code was originally written for <a href="">my personal website</a>.</p>
<p>Because the button is added via the Shadow DOM, the given CSS does not apply to it. Here is an alternative <a href="">solution that solves this problem</a>.</p>
<p>Please note: This works currently only in Safari (macOS and iOS) and Chrome on Windows and Android. Other browsers won't show a button beneath.</p>
