Hi.  "Recent changes" and watchlists show the amount of text added/removed in
green/red.[1]  But "View history" only shows the total amount of text in each
revision, and "User contributions" shows no amount information at all.

It would be more useful to see amounts added/removed on all three of these
pages, instead of just one.[2][3]  This way, we'd instantly know which edits
are additions, which are removals, which are big, and which are small.

And on "View history", it would be even more useful to see both the amount
added/removed and the new total, like this:  "+ 100 = 1,100 bytes".  This way,
we'd be able to more easily check that every malicious blanking of a page
that's ever happened has been fully undone.  This would be useful on [[en:Labor
Ready]] for example.

^  [2].
^  [3].  [[fr:User:The RedBurn]] has already written a gadget that shows amount
added/removed on all history pages you view.  It doesn't affect contribs pages.
 To enable it, edit [[Special:MyPage/skin.js]] and add all this on one line:
