Long ago, I adjusted my text editor so that when the cursor is placed on ), the matching ( is found. Ditto for { }, [ ], < >, and #if/#elif/#else/#endif (!). It's been incredibly convenient.

This has literally been in vim since I started using it, what, 15 years ago? It doesn't matter.

The #if too?

Yes. http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Moving_to_matching_braces

When I'm reviewing a PR, I don't see the matching as easily.

True, but that applies to anything with a block structure.

Sure, I also have a difficult time with loads of parentheses in function calls too.

I don't have a hard time with braces. It tends to be worse with parentheses. Generally these are indented properly, and not }}}}} all on one line.

Note: if there are brace issues, the auto-tester fails it. Why did that example I posted not catch the extra closing paren? Can we have it do so?
