sometimes i visit a thread, then click `back`, and visit another thread and so on...
after many visits, i found that i am lost, i don't know if a threads i have visited or not
one of the solution is to use CSS a:visited style, so that I can track which threads I have visited
however, my designer is not very happy with that...it make the layout no consistent and look ugly if too many visited links...
so i want to ask, besides `visited`, which approach you think can balance the design layout & usablilty?
Better would be to keep track of visited threads in a database, and then use a style, icon, etc. to indicate visited threads. You will need to use a cookie if you want to do this for non-logged-in users.
Don't recall which one(s), but I believe that at least one popular BBS system supports small icons for visited threads, as I've seen this frequently.
