History page excessively cluttered, esp. with suppressrevision
Open, MediumPublic

Description

I would like to enable suppressrevision/deleterevision for sysops by default, for a default MediaWiki install. But the history page interface is excessively cluttered and confusing. While this might not be a problem for Wikipedia's elite, I think it may be overwhelming for someone using MediaWiki for the first time.

Can we please have a method for hiding the less commonly used items on the history page, to be shown when a link or button is clicked? I'm especially interested in hiding the show/hide link and checkbox. Additionally hiding the comparison radio buttons would also be good, since the usability initiative found them to be distracting.

Getting this into Gerrit would be great.
