When browsing the mobile Stack Overflow site links are displayed in a reddish tone. This is a good contrast to the text color. But whenever a link was visited it gets the very same color as the "normal" text. So if you visit a link, than go back to the question you won't see it anymore and it's like: "Argh, which part was the link?". Could this be changed?

In the image you see that effect on the "edit", "delete" and "flag" links, where it doesn't cause any trouble. The link within the paragraph "jQuery-Docs: '.animate()'" on the other hand is not this easy to notice anymore:

  • @Grammer Even as much as 4 hours to deplete an iPhone (even if it's got iOS 6.1) is a little short. Humour! =)

  • Maybe add [bug] to the tags. It is a bug, in the sense of a malfunction in how the web is supposed to work, even if someone somehow decided this was a good idea. Commented Feb 25, 2013 at 17:34

This is fixed now.

Sorry about that -- I had created a typo in our mobile CSS:

.message a, a:visited

should have been

.message a, .message a:visited
