Chrome/Chromium visited link colour - custom.css

Postby xircon on Mon Sep 26, 2011 5:44 am

Getting older is a royal pain in the ........ :D (I am only 50!!).

I have started, in the last couple of weeks, to find it difficult to differentiate between the blue and purple of links and visited links. So I Googled and set up a custom.css:
Code: Select all
A:visited { color: darkmagenta ! important }


But this affects every web page I visit. I only want it to affect say Google - is this doable? Never been interested in HTML, and can't find anything useful.

Have tried a couple of extensions, but they are not very good.

Cheers

I think on Chrome you need the Stylish extension to be able to do that. On Firefox of course you can easily do this, by changing your code to read:
Code: Select all
@-moz-document domain(google.com) {
   A:visited { color: darkmagenta ! important }
}

You can read details for Firefox here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/@-moz-document

I still prefer Firefox, because it allows these kind of easy tweaks :wink:

Thanks Vincent, found a better extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... meggkbjdhd (Chrome Stylist). It is still a bit flaky, it doesn't always appear in the address bar, but is better than the ones I tried. Thanks for the pointer.

Was a long time FF user, Chromium just looks better, personal opinion, it fits better on my 1366x768 laptop and I don't have to tweak the titlebar with Compiz, I spent weeks going back and forth, but have been using Chromium for months now. Firefox really needs to sharpen up its appearance. The other annoying thing is that after every update a large proportion of the themes and extensions just stop working. But I still have it as backup.

Cheers
