I like this feature even though I don't need it often. But it does come handy when I have to paste larger texts, for example public keys, into a form and want to make sure it looks correct.

Just FYI: Chrome does this, too. I don't know when it started doing that, but I noticed it a few weeks ago. It's cool and I've used it a couple times already.

I think Chrome did it from day 1... or at the latest day 2.

I wish I'd known that. I've been primarily using Chrome for a couple years now and as I said I just recently noticed this feature.

Yeah it's pretty subtle. At first I was sure individual sites were offering it, through JavaScript or something.

Is it a part of the HTML5 spec?
