Sorry for the confusion. I'm talking about it in eww.

Also, I'm not talking about a "visited-link" -- it is really about
indication that a link was just successfully clicked. For example, in
eww, visit an arbitrary page and move point to an arbitrary link and
then press '&' (eww-browse-with-external-browser). There is no
indication that the command has been executed. Even a dashed box lasting
a few seconds on the clicked URL would help a lot.
