How to Change the Visited Link Color in the Google Search Results

I feel uncomfortable when I see the Google search results because both the visited link color and ‘not-visited’ link color on the Google search appears same for me. By default the Google shows the visited link color in the light blue and unvisited link color in the dark blue.

So, I felt I needed a custom color for the visited  link in the Google search results. If you are the person who may have problems with the  color vision and want to change the default visited color in the Google search results then here is a small tutorial which helps you to change default visited link color in the Google search results with the User Script
