You can still change the color of followed
links with IE 10 using your own CSS (specified in Tools, Options Accessibility). But it’s a global
setting, in other words, every followed link will be affected.
Just create a text file in your Documents folder and paste something similar to this -
Rename the file to my.css and point to it in the options above. Make sure you place a check mark in the "Format Documents using my style sheet" box)
Chief, you mentioned that the links are highlighted (boxed) when you return to the GB page - when you follow a link does it open in a new tab? Or, does it replace the current page?
By the way, the above mentioned trick will not work well here at Game Boomers, but should work just fine on most pages. Try it on a Google search if you want to see it work.
