I don't know how it looks like for other people, maybe it's different, 
but in my case most of the stuff in in-text math formulae is coloured, 
because of all the \frac \cos etc. inside, so I've no difficulties 
telling at once on which side of the $'s the formulae are.

Or when you have to scroll back several pages to find what name you 
gave to a \label. Or when you have to scroll back to find a piece of 
formula to copy and paste into a new formula. Yes, very handy.
