Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

This is the current appearance of questions on beta SE sites:

But this seems the opposite to the 'default' colour scheme of most browsers, where light blue is used for unvisited links and a darker colour is used for visited links.

Is it possible to swap the two colours over? I keep getting them mixed up.

+1, it is more common for visited links to be darker than unvisited. It looks a bit weird the other way around. – Andy E Jul 1 '10 at 11:07
Good catch. We'll reverse the colors shortly. – Jin Jul 1 '10 at 18:08

ok, Jin implemented the CSS for this and I will deploy it shortly.

The colors for this is still not good. See this answer on a related question over at UX. "The color for unvisited links should be more vivid, bright, and saturated than the color for visited links, which should look used (dull and washed out)." The light blue that is currently the "unvisited" color looks a bit "disabled" against the white background (and even more against the light blue background for favourite-tagged questions). – awe Oct 18 '13 at 11:03
Also see this reported issue on the "New Stack Exchange Beta Theme" style issues question. – awe Oct 18 '13 at 11:18
