Link Colour in Alerts Popup indicates "visited"

In summary, the feature of light blue color indicating "visited" links has been occurring for a while, and the person has just noticed the change. They have checked on another browser and the same issue persists, indicating that it is not a browser-specific problem. They have also switched browsers and the feature remains accurate, which leads them to believe that the information is stored on the website. This feature is appreciated by the person.

ie: the text for linking to a newly modified post in a watched thread is light blue (indicating "visited"), instead of dark blue, which it used to be (which then would change to light blue after the link had been clicked on).

This isn't a new thing ; been going on for awhile ; but it just occurred to me to question the change. Could be my browser, which hasn't had History emptied in a few years... but I just checked another browser and same thing.

:woot: Yeah, my browser may be in the same situation.

I'd forgotten about this post, but just checked ; still the same issue. I've even switched browsers (one Firefox variant to another) in the interim (but I think I kept my History).

I think that information is kept on PF for you. As you say, I can switch computers and the feature is still accurate for me. It's a nice feature, IMO.
