In css there are properties for hyperlinks that can be visited, active, hover and link. Active is a useless property as it seems to be only displayed in the period between when the link has been pressed and when the next page is loading (which is usually insignificant time). A far better property would have been "current" (as in the url that is currently displayed in the browser window) - that is what I thought active meant at first, and it would be far more helpful to navigation than the property now known as "active". You just need to look how many sites use javascript or other methods to indcate that a link is to the current page.
