Selecting vertex, edges, faces throughout mesh like in Blender 2.7x

Is there any chance to get back method and look of selecting vertexes, edges and faces in edit mode like in Blender 2.7x?

Only editing mesh object is transparent and rest object in scene is in solid mode. I think, that using “whole scene transparent” icon in Blender 2.80 every time when I want to edit some object is crazy and make whole scene unreadable, not clear. What do you think about it?
