I don't know if it's my monitor or bad eyesight, but do you guys/gals also have trouble seeing hyperlinks here at TCS? They almost have the same color as the text!
While I don't have any major problems distinguishing the text and link colors, I do agree that it is a bit hard to distinguish them on a white background. I usually have to look carefully to check if there was a link buried in some text that I have overlooked.
I would support increasing the contrast between the two colors to make links stand out more.
