VisualStudio Output Window Error highlighter

In Visual Studio 2015, the Output Window contains plain text, with no colorizing or highlighting of any kind. This makes it hard to spot some errors in the multitude of output text, for example WPF’s binding errors.

I have long wanted an extension to highlight this kind of errors, so I decided to write one for myself. Very simple, it just puts in red all the lines containing “Error” so that now I can see if I miss any binding error in WPF, definitely saving me a lot of time.
