Change link colours or colourblind option?

  • Is it possible, on Opera GX, to change the link colours? Or is there a colourblind option? I can not tell the difference, at all, between the blue (unopened) and purple (opened) links. It's quite frustrating.


  • Some stylesheet add-on (such as Stylus) might be able to do that. On Presto-based Opera you could do this by setting an unusual style for visited links - I had mine set to use strikethrough instead of underline. Using a color wasn't a good option as many websites override the default style, but no one seemed to clear strikethrough. so that was still visible. However, Blink-based Opera has no comparable built-in feature.

  • Thanks for your reply, sgunhouse.
    I've not worked out stylus as yet - keeps asking to enable something on chrome, which I don't have. But will look further into it. Thanks. Maybe Opera GX can integrate a colourblind option. Even a strikethrough would be handy.

  • You can try this extension. There are some preset colors but you are free to specify any color you want for a visited link.

    You will need to have the Opera extension "Install Chrome Extensions" installed first.
