It's just a matter of convenience.. I have bookmarks set for http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs.git/log/?h=emacs-25, http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs.git/log/ and http://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/log/. So it is just easier/quicker to browse through those quickly in multiple tabs in a browser.

Also, I use the search interface on cgit.. it's very powerful for my purpose where I can search by log/author/etc.

I am not saying that git CLI/Magit/gitk/etc cannot do that.. just that cgit helps me do this stuff pretty quickly. Some day I might find the non-brower git commit browsing quicker.

Why do you use cgit?  Why not just use Git itself locally?
