How can I remove the highlighted text of previous search links in Google search ?

GAUTHAM June 12, 2010

When I click a link in my Google search page, it gets highlighted with some pink color. Whenever I open the search page again, I see the highlighted link, which shows that I have opened it. Even when I do clear browsing data in my browser it remains the same. How to remove that?

    Hi Gautham,

    you can stop the visited links from showing by disabling your browser history or by disabling CSS Styling Information for visited links.

    I explained how to do this for Firefox in my article Do You Know What The Internet Knows About You?.

    This forum entry explains how to make the above mentioned changes for Internet Explorer:

      Make sure you have clear history selected before removing data.
