Is there any special reason for the same ?

Most browsers take the standard selection color of the operating system. This color is chosen to be consistent with the rest of the operating system.
If you use Windows that color is blue, with Ubuntu for example the selection color is orange. And you will see that the selection color in browsers in Ubuntu the selection color is also orange.
