I was aghast when I saw the balloons, but now I wouldn't want
to switch back. Maybe the efficiency of the functionality
depends on the nature of your changes. If there are a few
changes and all you need is a casual reminder of them, the
balloons are fine. And there isn't all the interference
in your running text, with the attendant risk of finding that
the final file has an extra or missing period or space that
went unnoticed in the clutter. I imagine that if you have
a lot of changes and they are important in their minutiae,
the balloons may be harder to keep track of...
