Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I want to review changesets done by mappers that are new to OSM.

Currently I go to "http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/123456789", download the osmChange XML to a file changeset.osc and open this file in JOSM. Is there an easier way to review a changeset?

Have a look at the OSM wiki about Quality assurance → Monitoring tools

Thanks, I know that page and use some of the tools (osmDiff) for example. But I could not find one now to review a specific changeset or changesets of a specific user more closely. Can you give me a hint?

@AddisMap_Alexander: I currently use achavi and OSM History Viewer (OSMHV) for this purpose. But new tools come and old ones go, so keep an eye on this list in future. :)

I use achavi http://nrenner.github.io/achavi/ to review changesets. It higlights new objects, changed objects and deleted objects in different colours
