How to Change the Color of Visited Links on Safari

Safari is a browser made by Apple for Mac computers. Users can set the browser to refer to their own style sheet that sits on their computer's hard drive. This is a nice feature if you want to change elements of Web browsing, such as the color of visited links. You may want to do this if you are on a page that you want to keep track of the links that you clicked and the default color is the same as unclicked links.

Step

Launch the Text Editor application on your Mac, and click "Format" in the main menu. Choose "Make Plain Text" if available.

Step

Type "a:visited { color: (color) !important; }" in a new text file with (color) being the color that you want visited links to be. Replace "(color)" with the code of the corresponding desired color. For example, if you want visited links to be green, type "a:visited { color: #00FF00 !important; }" in the text file.

Step

Click "File" in the main menu bar, and then click "Save As." Name the file "CustomLinkColor.css" and save it to your desktop. Click the "Use .Css" button in the dialog box.

Step

Launch Safari. Click "File" in the main menu bar and choose "Preferences." Click the "Advanced" tab. Click the "Style Sheet" drop-down menu and select "Other." Navigate to the "CustomLinkColor.css" file you saved in Step 3. Highlight it and click "Choose."

Step

Restart your browser. The color of visited links will change to the color that you designated.
