Make certain types of edits in 'Get edits' highlightable for ease of parsing the results
Open, MediumPublicFeature

Description

Feature summary (what you would like to be able to do and where):
The 'Get edits' screen, while useful, is often very big and confusing. Without the use of userscripts and/or the browser's find tool, being able to find particular types of edits is difficult. This would allow CheckUsers, almost certainly after running the check and it being done via JS, to highlight results based on particular filters. For example, results that are for account creations or edits to a particular page.

Use case(s) (list the steps that you performed to discover that problem, and describe the actual underlying problem which you want to solve. Do not describe only a solution):
A CU runs a check on a range that is wide due to highly dynamic IPs. They want to find all the failed login attempts on this range. They run a check and then start searching for this. They could use the browsers find in page feature, but they use this tool to highlight and maybe filter for only these matching edits.

Benefits (why should this be implemented?):
Would make reading 'Get edits' results from busy ranges easier.

Extra info
Almost certainly will need to wait until T145265 is done.
