Hot on the heels of checking out pull
requests
, you can now
open files in GitHub for Mac and GitHub for
Windows
straight from pull requests and branches!

You can see the new "Open" button in pull requests:

pr-open-file

And when viewing a file on a branch:

branch-open-file

Clicking it will open GitHub for Mac or GitHub for Windows, clone the repository
(if you don't have it), automatically switch to the branch containing the
changes, and finally open the file for editing in its default application.

We're hoping that this makes it much easier to address pull request comments! 📝
