Find modified content in modpack profiles

If you want to join a server when playing a modpack, you need you modlist to be the same as the server's. This can get annoying when content management is on: it's hard to see what you modified in your profile. If you want to create a server with that profile (like with the essential mod) or if you want to join a server, it can be difficult to figure out what you need to change, and creating a new profile may not work if the modified profile is hosting.

To fix this, I suggest a new button under content management called "See Modified". This would bring up a new tab that would tell you which mods were added, which mods were removed or disabled, and which mods were updated when compared to the default profile. This would be useful because all you would need to do is look at that tab to see what you have modified (It could also save this information to a text file, and maybe people could also load that file into Curseforge with a certain profile to kind of load those settings).

Ultimately, there should be a way to see which parts of a profile were modified, and the above is just my suggestion to fix this problem (and an extra idea about profile exporting and importing).
