    I was never really taught to use these, and I honestly never notice them on a site. Should I be using them on all links? Or just text based links? Or at all? Do they matter?


    You do not have to and I only use it if the design calls for it.


    As @Hopimpa said, it is just for decoration. I try and use it if it makes sense, I like the visual confirmation of clicking a button. For instance, here is a snippet for anchors in paragraphs that I use frequently:

    p a:active {
    position: relative;
    top: 1px;
