Because the web is built on links, how we style our links (i.e, anchors, or
<a> tags) should always be an important part of a site’s overall design, branding, and feel.
I’ve seen so many variations on the link style/color and hover style/color combination, that I thought it would be interesting to list as many of them here as possible. Some of these will be quite common and humdrum, while others may be ugly and impractical. I tried to stay away from really bizarre animated stuff, but instead chose to stick to those that you might actually see on a web page.
