This is a tremendously useful feature for me. On the sites where I use it the most, it can take a lot of thought to come up with the "right" filter. If I make a choice that I expect to cut my solution space by half, and it cuts it right down to 2%, or vice versa, it immediately conveys a ton of information about the situation I'm in.

Filters collapsed, nothing applied
