The problem with the experience is not the web browser but bugzilla +
integration with other tools.  Maybe if you were editing in bespin and using
some sort of cloud based compiling farm (cool idea...) then it'd make sense
to stay in the browser for the patch review/tracking side of things.  But
the reality is that most of us use some sort of IDE/editor + command line
tools to do our job.

I don't see how not using a web browser for one particular task on one
particular site (that's not very great anyway) is somehow betraying the
product you're working on.


P.S. Thanks so much everyone who's worked on webkit-patch!  It takes SO much
pain out of working on WebKit.
