Here is my thought:

I have a bunch of links that are black.

They have a hover of blue and underline.

They all open new tabs on click.

User hovers, clicks, and a new tab opens (link is now blue and underlined but you’re in the new tab).

User closes new tab and returns to page (before clicking anywhere) the link remains yellow. This indicates where you had just visited.

Once user clicks anywhere on page the link returns to black.


What are your thoughts on something like that? I want to avoid a permanent :visited state, and I think this could be a happy/medium that seems somewhat intuitive.
