Legible Row Coloring

While working on some latency demos, I came to the following thought on tabular representations:

Bad:











abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc

Better:















abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc
abcabc

Edit: removed flawed analysis. It's interesting to think about this with respect to bits of information conveyed to support quickly scanning a row horizontally.
