Although I would keep the current way too, maybe switch modes with a single
click? Or make it customizable in preferences?

Also, now we are talking about the info bar, I recall someone suggested

Ok, I understand Ton's point, and somehow I agree, but... maybe we could
find a middle ground making the icons less flashy, or even not using icons

Tooltips could be implemented to help new users understand it. Once used to
it, I think anyone's eyes would find the exact info they need to review
faster than with the current almost "codeish" string of text (no offense
