 The underline shouldn't be removed. Otherwise, this link (actually it's a
 button that looks like a link) would be distinguishable as an interactive
 controls only by its color.

 Color alone is not sufficient. As in the case of links, the underline is
 necessary when the context doesn't clarify it's an interactive control.

 > When links can be identified as such by the context, for example because
 they’re part of a menu, or a set of links clearly identified as user
 interface controls, they don’t necessarily need to be underlined. In all
 the other cases, especially for links surrounded by other text (in a line
 or block of text), links need to be always underlined.
