Since Sunday when I use Google Chrome links now appear as crossed out not underlined why? They still function but I have no clue how this has happened or how to change it back. Is not problem when I use Firefox.

Can anyone help?

Have you installed any extension that day? – slhck Jun 22 '11 at 14:48
Are you loading any custom stylesheets? – Darth Android Jun 22 '11 at 14:49
@kalaracey - Since Chrome auto-updates with zero user interaction, I'm not sure it's really fair to ask if someone updated chrome on a given day. The rest of the questions are good, though. – Iszi Jun 22 '11 at 15:38
@Iszi that's true. I was thinking of firefox. But I think I figured out the problem -- see my answer. I'll remove my comment. – kalaracey Jun 22 '11 at 15:39

I think it is caused by an add-on called "SeoQuake" When the SeoQuake's dropdown menu is opened, and the "Highlight NoFollow" option is toggled on (i.e., there is a checkmark next to it) all of the links are displayed as "strikethrough" instead of "underline". Deselecting this option, then refreshing / restarting Chrome should do the trick.
