There have been lot of complaints about the annoying underline link in Google Chrome. However Google doesn’t seem to care much to give Chrome users the option to turn it off – as other browsers did. There is an extension to do it somewhere, but be careful cause that extension has a caveat. It will track you down anywhere you go on the net. Luckily there is a simple solution to get rid of the underline link. I’m using Windows 7 not so sure how it work in other OS. For windows 7 the step is easy just follow the link below:

screenshot how to get rid of Google Chrome Underline link

C:Users\your-computer-name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets\custom.css.

You will see a stylesheet call custom.css. It’s blank by default and you can modified it by inserting the css code below:

/* Don’t underline links by default. */
:link, :visited {
text-decoration: none;

/* Underline link when hovering above them. */
:link:hover, :visited:hover {
text-decoration: underline;

Voila! you’re done the underline gone.
