Requiring a web browser is a huge requirement, ham?? How come that can
be an impediment to move forward way of this awkward way of reviewing
patches through email? Switching to Gerrit would mean everyone would
be using the same tool instead of anyone using its own email client
(gmail, mutt, thunderbird, whatever...) and having to figure out git
format-patch, git send-email (--reply-to where?).

There are a lot of issues of having to use email for reviewing patches
that I think Gerrit is a superior alternative.

And many people are arguing for it!

Let's move on...
