+1 to having it in browser as the first priority. People are more and
more comfortable all the time in their browsers.
Personally, I'm not sure I would want it tied to git explicitly - we
haven't quite made that jump at work yet. On the other hand, it should
be easy to put hooks into it to auto-commit changes to pretty much any
type of repository.
