Here is a good Firefox plugin, Github Time Travel, that lets you browse Github commits by date. Normally, when you browse commits (changes made on a particular project) on Github, you need to scroll down the webpage to read them. Moreover, to find older commits, you need to use the available button to explore more commits one after another. This is time-consuming as well as not so good when you have to edit a particular commit.

This Firefox extension adds a Button to the commit log to easily browse commits. You simply need to select a particular day and month (which is not possible normally) to filter the commits and quickly jump to the commits posted on a particular date.

In the screenshot below, you can see a particular commits repository before and after using this Firefox plugin.
