Regarding changes: There could be hundreds/thousands of many smaller changes scattered across many files that may be irrelevant to me, so it is good that I don't see them by default. Debugging (on my local machine) will lead me to a single "problematic" file (hopefully), and then I will browse the repository to find that file and compare the changes between versions. If it is a well-maintained/developed library, I would not have to do this often (the problem will be on my side, rather on the library's side).

The problem with README files is that you don't know how long they will be, where the typical code project is neatly structured into a reasonable number of directories that will fit "above the fold". In smaller projects, you will see the start of the README immediately, whereas in others you will just scroll down slightly to see it. I can only comment on my specific use of the site, and from my observations working with other developers in larger development teams.

You mention "The most prominent element on the screen is the file tree" - treat this the same as the list of email headers in GMail. The files (emails) invite clicking. This is my second use-case. I am "using the page" by scrolling and reading the README file (not visible on your screenshot). This is my first use-case. But all of this is secondary to the way people actually use GitHub (through the git command line utility). So the web view is all about browsing and reading and comparing (for me at least).

comment Does anybody know why google chart sparklines were deprecated?
If you scroll down, there is a section with the heading "Retirement of older APIs" which clearly states "In addition, we are announcing the deprecation of several older APIs and versions. Please visit the documentation for each API for more information about the deprecation period and suggested alternatives". The Image Charts API (which contains the sparklines functionality) is specifically listed there.

comment Competitive usability evaluations: What if I've already done the work?
Depending on your industry, you will probably find that sites tend to change periodically (even in small subtle ways), and that you will have to update your evaluations. There may be less work involved, but definitely work to keep your analyses "current" nonetheless.
