"Open on GitHub"


GitHub, GitHub, GitHub... They are definitely the cool kids on the block right now. So hey, might as well pile on, right! :)

A few months ago, we highlighted an extension that makes it easy to navigate from Visual Studio to associated file on GitHub, Look... GitHub... LookHub

Today, we're highlighting another take at a like extension, with a name that says it all...
