RedVisitedLinks.crx

An extension that I wrote that will change the color of visited link in Chrome to Red. There are two files in this extension:
manifest.json:

{
"name": "RedVisitedLinks",
"version": "1.0",
"description": "Make visited links red",
"content_scripts" : [
{
"matches" : ["http://*/*", "https://*/*", "ftp://*/*"],
"css" : ["redlinks.css"]
}
]
}

and redlinks.css:

a:visited { color: red; }

TaDa!

Install by clicking the link below. Requires version 4.0+ of chrome.

  1. No worries! You can see how easy it is to make extensions to customize the look and feel of chrome, now. post back here or at the Google help forum if you have any problems.

  2. I followed the procedure that you outlined by following your directions, but sadly the links just stay blue after being visited! No more purplish color, but no red. I restarted my pc and all.

  3. Contrary to my previous post, the extension has changed visited links to red (just not this page for some reason despite refreshing and restarting). Thanks for your help.
