Yes the "shift-select" is really a killer feature for the web interface.

I agree the spacing should be small, or at least have a preference
settings for compact mode.
I would add that the line "Submitted by" below the title seems useless
as the info is already at the top of the commit message section.

I wonder wether the box to change some patch properties should be
duplicated between the last comment and the patch, to avoid scrolling
after reading the comments.

Another good feature would be to change the color and reduce the size
of the history in the comments (I mean lines starting with "> ") to
improve readability.

Thanks for improving patchwork
