In Tools > Preferences > Data, starting with r4426, you will find two new color selectors for a new setting: "Alternating row background". Especially on large screens, this can help the eyes not to loose the right row when reading table contents. Just update to the latest build to get that feature before the next release.
Thanks to timfranken for the idea!
