Though actually loading the demo in other browsers, I am not sure I understand their behavior either. I think the problem is that you cannot remove all ":link" styles when the link is visited because otherwise this might leak somehow, so only a couple of properties will match using ":visited" and other properties will match using ":link" and this creates a weird state.

Maybe saying ":link" always matches would help solve the craziness but there might be a few websites broken by specificity of ":link" overriding their ":visited" styles.
