Git tool provider GitKraken launched GitLens 12 with support for Visual Studio Code for the Web and GitLens is an extension for Git that can be used in various IDEs, and according to the company, is the most downloaded Git extension for Visual Studio Code.

In addition, premium features like Worktrees and Visual File History are now available through the GitLens Free+ and Pro plans.

“Bringing the power of GitLens to the Web is an incredible milestone, and introduces compelling new opportunities for developers. Now everyone can access GitLens’ rich insights to better understand why things changed, when, and by whom, directly from their browser” says Eric Amodio, CTO and CPO of GitKraken.  

GitLens 12 provides support for Visual Studio Code for the Web, which gives users the ability to edit GitHub repositories in VS Code in a web browser, on desktops or tablets, with no install required.
