It is not obvious what the revision slider does

On a 24 inch screen the prev and next buttons are far away from the slider making it to appear without any context. You need to hover on it to understand what it does but IMHO there is no incentive to do that.

Maybe there should be a right and left arrows on both sides of the slider

It doesn't actually matter what your screen size is - it's more the relative length of the slider itself, so you can find them "disconnected" at much smaller sizes as well. That said, though - the slider handle has arrows on it already. I think it's pretty clear what it's for. The buttons are not descriptive helpers for the slider, they are an alternate method of navigation. You may need to orient yourself to the screen the first couple times you use it, but that is okay.
