Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

i'd like to have the questions i already visited to be highlighted so it would be easier to scroll thorugh them espcially when new ones are arriving.

how about it?

My browsers perfectly show the links I've visited, and I did not do anything fancy for that.

(Maybe you should set your browser to keep a longer history?)

yeah, mine too (just saw it) but it's not obvious enough for me – Chris Oct 11 '09 at 12:39
    
@Arjan I work on multiple machines, including a smart phone. Those are different browsers, and I would very much like an indication that I've visited before. – Maarten Bodewes Feb 23 '13 at 14:56
    
Very good point, @owlstead. And though some browsers allow for synchronising these things on different machines, at work I do use my own SE account, but use my work address to login to my browsers. Still then, I guess this was not what the question was about, back in 2009? Maybe a new feature request for "Synchronise and highlight visited questions on multiple browsers/devices"? – Arjan Feb 23 '13 at 15:52
    
(Or: "across browsers/devices".) – Arjan Feb 23 '13 at 16:12

@owlstead, related: Add a “recently viewed” tab in the user account page, but it seems that Nicks's answer there is not giving you much hope. – Arjan Feb 23 '13 at 16:15
    
@Arjan I think that was exactly what I was looking for, I've asked Nick to see if something similar is possible (explicit ignore for a month or so). – Maarten Bodewes Feb 23 '13 at 16:24

You can use Greasemonkey or Stylish to change the a:visited links to something much more obnoxious if you like. I'm sure someone will come along with a script soon enough ;)

I think that requiring to install a plugin to get this functionality is a bit much, especially when there are multiple browsers involved (and in my case I cannot just install more plugins at my company). – Maarten Bodewes Feb 23 '13 at 14:58
