On http://eztv.it, there are dozens of small 'arrow down' download icons. Clicking on them should change their color to a darker one, as the link has been visited. This used to work, and worked as recently as 3.6.x, but has stopped working in the 4.0 beta. Clicking on the links there never causes them to appear darker anymore.

Other browsers: Works in Opera, does not work in Chrome.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit eztv.it
2. Click on one of the icons for downloading a torrent

Actual Results:  
See that the icon is now focused, but has not changed color to the dark color it should

Expected Results:  
Should change color, as visited links of icons there should appear dark. For comparison, see how it works in Opera, or Firefox 3.6.x.
The page uses different background images for visited and unvisited links.  Unfortunately, that leads to pages being able to determine which pages you have visited in the past, so the ability for pages to do this has been disabled. See http://dbaron.org/mozilla/visited-privacy for details.

This is why it fails in nightly Chrome builds too; they implemented the same solution for the privacy hole.
