Description Jamie Hari 2007-12-07 05:26:36 UTC
On the Recent Changes page, we see byte indicators, in green and red, to show how much text was added or removed during an edit, at a glance.

Example:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Recentchanges

It would be nice to see this same info on the history tab of articles as well; in addition to the article size. 

Example history page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Brion%20Vibber&action=history

For vandalism watching purposes primarily, of course.

Too much clutter.  I recommend WONTFIX.  Change numbers should be listed with changes, size should be listed with revisions.

I happen to have a userscript at [[User_talk:Alex_Smotrov/histcomb.js]]
