Apparently, visited links are no longer distinguishable from the rest. They used to be in a slightly different shade than non-visited ones. Personally, I found the feature to be very helpful, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Could we please have the old feature back ? Thank you. $($I am running Windows XP SP$3$, maybe that's what's causing the problem ?$)$.

  • $\begingroup$ I doubt it's a problem with your computer, I see the same thing. There seem to have been a fairly update to the design of the site, many parts have been changed. $\endgroup$ – Najib Idrissi Jul 1 '15 at 11:03

    $\begingroup$ I don't think it causes the problem, but running XP SP3 looks like a problem. When was XP EOLed? $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Jul 1 '15 at 11:23

    $\begingroup$ If you hate it sufficiently, you can use Greasemonkey or some other extension to manually set the visited link color CSS on the site. $\endgroup$ – AlexR Jul 1 '15 at 17:19

    $\begingroup$ This is really bothering me now. I wish someone in the design team would fix this. $\endgroup$ – Cameron Williams Jul 27 '15 at 3:15

  • $\begingroup$ @AlexR: Can you specifically tell me what to write in the empty .js file ? Because all available solutions I've found on-line don't seem to work, for some reason... $\endgroup$ – Lucian Aug 21 '15 at 5:25

    $\begingroup$ Three months later and still no change... In case anyone is interested, installing an extension like "Stylish" or "StyleBot" and adding a custom CSS like .question-hyperlink:visited { color: #4D7686; } solves the problem (you can customize the color, obviously). $\endgroup$ – Najib Idrissi Sep 30 '15 at 12:03
