Color Links

Description from extension meta

This extension allows you to change the color of your visited links

Image from store Color Links
Description from store Color Links enhances how users navigate visited page search results on the web by allowing the user to select the color of the visited link. Color Links is an excellent enhancement for color deficient users. The ability to control the color of the visited site link, improves the visual comfort of the search by creating a color contrast that is appealing to the user. Browsing search results on google.com can be overwhelming, especially when the default colors for referencing visited links can be similar for end users with decreased ability to discern colors. Multiple color options are available in this light weight extension that will help you immediately sort out your visited links. Color Links is not only light weight but it is only one click. One click and the visited link stands out giving you quick visual confirmation of where you have already been. To get started, navigate to a page, toggle color links to the on (or green) position, and select your color. You can turn color links off at any time if you'd like by setting the toggle to off (or red).

  • (2020-07-01) SK L: Finally! Clicked links are discernible again---many thanks to the developer for allowing us to easily overcome the ridiculously similar default color choices for links. Chrome seems to have become increasingly oriented towards the nanny-state philosophy "this is what we have decided is best for you; live with it" . This extension helps peel back one of the many layers of frustration that result from that dubious approach. Thanks!
  • (2020-06-28) JustHitTheDab: Thx soooooo much that worked amazingly !
  • (2020-03-31) Lindsey Leeanna: Is not working in New Microsoft Edge with bing, but does work with Google. No worries they literally just added compatibility with Chrome. Unless this is a user error (lol), please inform. Cheers !
  • (2020-03-25) Kathe Galiano: ME HA ENCANTADO QUE APARTE DE LAS OPCIONES PREDETERMINADAS UNO PUEDA ELEGIR EL COLOR QUE LE GUSTE COLOCANDO EL CÓDIGO. Lo malo: *No se diferencia el botón habilitar y desabilitar. *Tienes que habilitarlo en la pagina que estas visitando. *La pagina no da instrucciones de como personalizar el color : hay personas que no saben que deben buscar "colores código" copiar el código del color que eligieron y en la extensión dar clic en el (#) y pegar el código [ #E026A3 ] y clic en (save) o guardar.
  • (2020-02-21) игорь мамонтов: Отлично работает!!!))) Хорошо бы добавить палитру выбора цвета. Писал Хрому чтобы сделали встроенную опцию,но ни ответа ни привета. Гугл такая мощная фирма но почему не сделали??? Спасибо "therynamo"
  • (2020-01-24) William Brennan: Thank you so much for making this extension! Works great. I hate how Chrome's default is blue and purple links that don't have enough contrast between them!
  • (2019-11-10) Otto Kan: Not working
  • (2019-10-13) pfettig77: Doesn't do anything. Links are still blue and purple (or whatever).
  • (2019-09-24) John: Doesn't work
  • (2019-06-20) Cazador de DRAGONES: Funciona, cuando se instala presionas el icono en la parte superior derecha y te permite agregar el color que quieres para los enlaces visitados de esa pagina en especifico.
  • (2019-05-30) Sayeed Alireza Zanjani: it works
  • (2019-05-20) Eduardo Morales Hudtwalcker: Not working in incognito mode even with the option for it to work, now I can't tell which porn sites I've already visited !
  • (2019-05-11) LooneyTunes Horner: It's not working
  • (2019-05-05) Drasko Divic: Just installed. It seems useful. Suggestion:more options (it now not exist). For example: permanent switched on! Or tooltips?
  • (2019-04-19) Disciple de Jésus-Christ: marche
  • (2019-03-09) Does not work in the Gov't of Canada Job Bank...
  • (2019-02-23) ruska myrsky: Does nothing on the news web site: www.yle.fi
  • (2019-02-15) Leslie Gordon: doesnt work
  • (2019-02-04) Dmitrii Starovoytov: works
  • (2019-02-02) Mauro Ciomei: Funziona solo su Google (Win 10). Meglio di niente.
  • (2018-12-21) Captain Sunday: Finally relief for the color impaired among us. Blue and purple look the same to me. Did Google ever care? NO EVEN A LITTLE. Why did it take 30 freaking years!
  • (2018-12-16) Sigitas Bartkevicius: Do not work on version 71
  • (2018-12-03) KDASthenerd: It's more or less good, but it's only working on Google for me. I try using it at Bing and YouTube, but it doesn't work there.
  • (2018-11-14) live oak: Yay, works perfectly. Very easy, does the one simple thing it's supposed to do. I'm not even color blind but was completely unable to discern the slight color difference for visited sites without squinting. I love an easy fix, thanks.
  • (2018-10-31) Garth Robbins: Very nice. I'd recommend explaining the color selection option and, if possible, integrating a color selector directly into your extension. The selector that's built into Google is convenient (just Google a hex color code). But I have to copy/paste each new value into your extension.

  • (2020-03-21, v:0.1.8) Ian Wager: Color Links default
    Could an option allow the on/off slider switch to be defaulted ON for all sites? Having to set each site is an unnecessary distraction and is easily forgotten.
  • (2020-01-16, v:0.1.8) Michel Lovis: Domain wide setting
    Hello, can one also use this setting domain wide? So, not every user has to install the plugin and select the color, but the admin can set the setting for the whole domain? Thank you

    Hi this works perfectly on normal Google searches, but for some reason doesn't work on Google Scholar. It's definitely turned on, and I have specified a custom colour #ffa500, but it still uses the default clicked link colour. Thanks
  • (2019-09-28, v:0.1.8) Leroy Casterline: Doesn't highlight all visited links.

    Keeps getting turned off.
  • (2019-09-11, v:0.1.8) Robert Whelan: Color Links Chrome Extension
    It keeps getting turned off. I like Color Links better than Stylist and hope for a way to keep it turned on in Chrome.
  • (2019-08-14, v:0.1.8) Kat Darling: All websites?

I would very much appreciate anything possible! I will check with this area for any help/comments. Thank you very much!
