Applying custom CSS to Links: You might not be aware that Chakra UI gives you the flexibility to apply custom CSS to the Link component. For instance, you can create an animated underline effect for your links when a user hovers over them. In this example, a blue underline expands beneath the text as a user hovers over the link, offering an animated, intuitive visual cue.
Creating a Download Link: You can create a download link using the Link component in Chakra UI. This could be a handy way to provide users with downloadable content such as a PDF or a ZIP file. By simply adding the download prop to the Link component, the linked file will be downloaded when the user clicks on the link. (The following link will download information about the standard poodle dog breed...because they are the best dogs on the planet. At least we think so.) By simply adding the download prop to the Link component, the linked file will be downloaded when the user clicks on the link.
Using Link as a Button: In some cases, you might want a link that looks like a button. This is easily achievable with Chakra UI. By passing the Button component in the as prop of Link, the link is rendered as a button. You can then use any of the Button props on the Link component, such as colorScheme. This can be useful when you want the aesthetics and interaction of a button, but the functionality of a link. Keep in mind: due to the way events are handled when you use the as prop in Chakra UI to transform the Link component into a Button component. When you click on the button, the event handler associated with the Button component gets triggered first and prevents the default link behavior. To get around this, you must handle the click event yourself.
