[Done] Different color for element hiding hits

example(it doesn't have to be purple):

I'm unsure of this idea so I wanted to ask opinions.

I believe this could help us when we tech support in the forum, if we have a unique colour in the blockable items list to refer to element hiding.

But will one more colour confuse users?
Or will it help them distinct between unblocked, blocked and hidden?

There seems to be some confusion from this user: http://adblockplus.org/forum/viewtopic. ... 1575#21575
About the #div(id^=divAd) filter: Without this filter, the blockable items list shows an item: vuvu.com.vn..../yah230x210.swf
Now when I enable the filter, the list will only show the element #div(id^=divAd) as being filtered and WILL NOT show vuvu.com..../yah230x210.swf.

And thats what I meant, where is vuvu... and why doesnt it show in the blockable items list as being filtered (either hidden or blocked)?


What do you guys think, would this change help?

I think the type column is a sufficient differentiator already. Element hiding rules really aren't that different in the context of blockable items.

Actually, maybe show the filter (and only the filter) in blue, like in the preferences dialog?

Yeah, that'd be great, I always spent my time on sorting out myself
