TortoiseHg is an easy to use client for the Mercurial (Hg) distributed revision control system. TortoiseHg adds shell integration into Windows and Linux (Gnome/Nautilus) and includes a command line wrapper.
RabbitVCS is a set of graphical tools written to provide simple and straightforward access to the version control systems you use. Currently, it is integrated into the Nautilus and Thunar file managers, the Gedit text editor, and supports Subversion and Git, with a goal to incorporate other version control systems as well as other file managers.
gitg is a git repository viewer targeting gtk+/GNOME. One of its main objectives is to provide a more unified user experience for git frontends across multiple desktops. It does this not be writing a cross-platform application, but by close collaboration with similar clients for other operating systems (like GitX for OS X).
gitg targets cases where it is useful to provide a graphical representation of git data or actions. The history view is a good example where graphical representation helps to get an overview of the repository. gitg does not aim to be an advanced tool which allows access to every feature of git through a graphical interface, it will however try to incorporate common actions which might require multiple actions on the command line (like staging, unstaging, reverting and committing).
Meld is a visual diff and merge tool. You can compare two or three files and edit them in place (diffs update dynamically). You can compare two or three folders and launch file comparisons. You can browse and view a working copy from popular version control systems such such as CVS, Subversion, Bazaar-ng and Mercurial. Written with Python and GTK.
Note: There are ports to Mac but the app doesn't "officially" run on Mac.
