It allows:
* Highlighted diffs (eg.
http://gitit.johnmacfarlane.net/Cheese/Yummy?diff&to=75ffcc1 )
* viewing the individual diff, more or less (eg.
* viewing an individual diff's revision (eg.
http://gitit.johnmacfarlane.net/Cheese/Yummy?revision=f57a439 )
* viewing the change represented by several patches (eg.
* viewing the history of just a particular file (eg
http://gitit.johnmacfarlane.net/Cheese/Yummy?history ) or the entire
repo ( http://gitit.johnmacfarlane.net/_activity )

Obviously all of this has equivalents in Darcs's commandlines and XML
output - that's how filestore is implemented, after all. But it is
much much easier  with even the basic GUI Gitit provides. It makes the
easy things easy.
