Are you looking for a web-based Subversion browser, or a GUI based
client that will allow developers to checkout directories, update, and

TortoiseSVN is probably the most stable and easy to use Windows based
client. It works inside Windows Explorer (a.k.a. the file browser).
You simply right-click to checkout, see diffs between versions of a
file, etc. It adds a mark to the icons to help distinguished between
the various states of files in a working directory. And, the price,
free, it hard to beat: http://tortoisesvn.net/.

There's a similar product for the Nautilus browser for Linux (can't
remember the name). The main complaint is that it's slow. Can't
remember the name off hand.

For Mac OS X, there's SCPlugin which works with Finder. I use Path
Finder (a Finder replacement) and it comes with its own Subversion
