    seo firefox plugin will highlight nofollow links for you. That, or you could look at the html code of the page by looking at the Page Source...

    Yeah, but all links are highlighted. So for those who got color blind problem, it's quite hard sometimes to tell the difference between **************** or nofollow.

    It comes with a stylesheet called no****************.css so you can change the colors.

    http://www.quirk.biz/searchstatus/.. not only does it have Alexa, Pagerank, Compete, and MozRank checkeres all built into a compact little bar, it also has the option to highlight all nofollow links in a light red box ;)
