Hi all, I have this question:

Whenever I am in a forum, I will choose the topic that I am interested and read them. But the problem is sometime I get mixed up with the links that I read and unread.
The method now I use is using shift+click to open up a new window for every topic. (IE6).
Anyone has any better way or software to marked the link or highlight links when ever I visited?
Any software that acts as a highlight or marker?

I know of no program that will do this. Many websites are designed so that active (just clicked), visited, and unvisited links appear in different colors. In fact, the default setup on a straight HTML website viewed in IE6 is just that. Unfortunately, most webseites these days are not straight HTML. Most forums (like this one, or example) will mark a topic as read once you click on it (here, for exaple, the little icon next to a topic will dim once you've read it).

In any case, upgrading to IE7 or switching to Firefox will give you tabbed browsing. That means that you can have dozens of web pages ope within one browser window.

Hope that helps!
