RainbowDelimiters is a “rainbow parentheses”-like mode which highlights parentheses, brackets, and braces according to their depth. Each successive level is highlighted in a different color. This makes it easy to spot matching delimiters, orient yourself in the code, and tell which statements are at a given depth.
-Great care has been taken to make this mode FAST. You shouldn’t see any change in scrolling or editing speed when its on even when working in delimiter-rich languages like Clojure, Lisp and Scheme.
+Great care has been taken to make this mode FAST. You shouldn’t see any change in scrolling or editing speed when it's on even when working in delimiter-rich languages like Clojure, Emacs Lisp or Scheme. It can be used with any language, and can be enabled editor-wide.
-You can customize the colors RainbowDelimiters uses. The default colors are intentionally subtle; they are unobtrusive enough to make the mode worth looking at even if you usually don’t like rainbow parentheses modes.
