Here's a good reference for web accessibility:

Looks like the recommendation is either a colour that's specific for 
links, or a colour scheme that's dependent on the state.  No real best 
practice for using it or not (Google uses the state and indicates as such; 
Microsoft doesn't).

I think a visited link colour change is helpful, as often times I visit a 
site and am trying to remember where I saw something, and the visual 
indicator can be helpful to track that down.
