Link colours in postings

Not sure if it's just me, but the colours of links don't seem as obvious as they used to be, but it does seem more apparent in Chrome than in IE or Firefox. Anyone else noticed this?

Reason for mentioning is that a couple of replies I've made, including links, it's fairly obvious the OP hasn't even noticed the link in the reply. Can they be made more obvious? - don't really like having to put 'click here'

"...it's fairly obvious the OP hasn't even noticed the link in the reply..."

... to me it's an "op" issue even after writing "click" it's still a "miss hit" for some by a long chalk eg: #8

... PS edit/
... it would be handy if the #8 link hopped to #8 html link, guess Justin is still thinking about it? (#53)

Now there's a thought, I could start using a font tag, or possibly bold tag, see if that makes it clearer.

Why not? "Click Here" is pretty obvious.....especially when you make it the link.

Personally, I try to put more than 2 or 3 words in the link in an attempt to make it even more obvious. So far it seems to work fairly well.

Something like........

"......simply click on the following link to the tech help site, Computing.Net where knowledgable people help resolve the hardest.........blah blah blah"

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

This the link to this thread.

I think I'd recognize that as a link.

The issue was more the fact that links are not as obvious as they used to be, using a standard insert, in the same way that the viewed posts aren't as obvious, in my opinion, either.
