I am not sure what you mean by "browse" in this case. If you mean
the entire world of git repos on github, I am not sure there is even a
sane way to approach that, if you are talking about a specific git repo
you are interested in exploring without downloading the entire history,
just what exists now, you can do a shallow clone using the --depth
flag with git clone.

Would be easy enough to bind it to a key.
