Description

This is a Chrome extension that allows you to easily navigate through the changes in a file that has been edited on GitHub.

You may have noticed that after editing a file through GitHub and previewing your changes, there is no easy way to navigate through the changes in a nice "next/previous change" manner. Most file formats only show the lines that were changed and several surrounding lines, so it's usually not a terrible inconvenience, but for any markdown document (.md) the situation is different. GitHub shows the entire markdown document when previewing the changes made, which means that if you're making a few tiny edits to a large document, it's very hard to find those edits and see what's changed. Rmarkdown (.Rmd) documents behave similarly, and potentially other markdown-type documents as well.

Enter: GitHub Diff Navigator.
