This question already has an answer here:

In chat, the link color is extremely similar to the regular text color. I have good eyesight and a well-calibrated display, and I have significant trouble telling them apart.

Here's an exercise: somewhere in these messages are links. Can you tell how many there are and which words are the links?

The WCAG contrast ratio on these colors is 2.2, i.e. not very much.

Here's the source of those messages in chat so you can check your guess.

  • \$\begingroup\$ To my perception, the link is pretty obvious. Maybe that's just my eyes. \$\endgroup\$ – Gnemlock May 11 '17 at 1:21
  • \$\begingroup\$ It's....kinda subtle, but I can see that it's there. It is definitely not the worst offender I've seen for link demarcation (cough, the exact same color as regular text and bold, as in identical to bold text). \$\endgroup\$ – Draco18s May 11 '17 at 4:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ I had to turn up my phone's brightness to spot the difference where I'm reading just now. ;) \$\endgroup\$ – DMGregory May 11 '17 at 4:07
