Description

Currently Recent changes are listed as a bulleted list which makes them quite difficult to scan.

Some considerations to making a table format would be how "Enhanced Recent Changes" and the extra buttons (such as [Rollback]) would be found. T53942: Watchlist and recent changes usability issues (tracking) puts it best though:

Watchlist and recent changes are not exactly the pinnacles of great design in general, neither in code, in looks or in usability.

Are you working on implementing this in core / extension (or is this a request)? Asking because you assigned yourself to make the change.

Oh, this is just a request. Somehow I mixed assigning and subscribing.
