Do you distinguish visited links?

Distinguishing visited links is very helpful to show where users have been before. Visited links should still stand out but not as obvious as unvisited ones. Give visited links a less saturated colour to give that "used" look and be careful not to overuse css techniques on visited links.

Figure: Visited links are marked different from unvisited.

Specifying style for visited links is very simple. Just add this to your CSS file:

A:visited { color: purple; }
