Nice feature?


Horrible, horrible, horrible.

Why not a leading asterisk or something, to mean "been there 

PLEASE don't take away the addr -- nothing wrong with
telling me I've been there already -- you know, maybe I'd
like to know WHERE I have already been, so as to 
recognize a SIMILAR (but somewhat different) address,
so as to NOT go there if I didn't like the first one,
eg so I can escape similar "garbage" from THAT site.

Again, best would be to show (1) the "been there" asterisk
or whatever, then (2) maybe the title, then (3) the ADDRESS;
or better yet, asterisk, ADDR, then title.

If not too many others want that, then please 
at least add a MODE or OPTION that allows it.


(it was the "blue" reference that finally explalined it
to me; then I tried it on my bookmarks file, and
yes the L-page items did change from addr to title
to THOSE items I had visited.  Horrors!)
