This feature was present in early Mosaic, but I haven't seen it again in any browser. It should be easy to code. The time of last visit is present in the History (isn't it?). It should be a question of finding the time passed and dividing it by the time we keep URL history. Then Mozilla should interpolate between visited and unvisited colors. I am not sure if the interpolation should be lineal or there would be some human factors to compensate. I don't know why this is not the standard. Maybe there is some human interface issue I didn't think about. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a apge with links, some visited, some not. 2. The links unvisited would appear, say, red. 3. The links visited 1 minute ago would appear, say, yellow. 4. The links visited 7 days ago would appear orange. 5. The links visited 15 days ago would appear, say, almost red. Actual Results: All the visited links within the history are yellow. Expected Results: (See the steps)
Note that this would be even slower than what we have now (which is just a boolean "is visited" check and is a rather visible item in profiles of pages with lots of links in them) and would require us to replace a pair of CSS rules with a bunch of C++ code....
Having a graduated range of color values, while technically possible, is a violation of basic laws of link coloring. It can be confusing enough when a site sets unvisited links in green and visited ones in blue, without a range of barely-discernable values in between to make sense of. If links are marked visited longer than you'd like, set your history to remember items visited for fewer days.
