There are so many variants of CVSweb and similar things that I'm no
longer sure which one I like best.

ViewCVS must be better though, if for no other reason than it's not
written in Perl!  ;-)

I had much the same sentiments.


As much as I don't like web-based applications, I do find CVSweb and the
like to be very conventient tools and I use them regularly (with a
text-only browser, i.e. "links").

On the other hand not much can beat a couple of xterms and an emacs
window or two for really digging into something.

Oh how I wish all my universe was smalltalk code....
