      - Cross-platform - Dark Theme - Good licensing: It's a "copyfree" MIT-licensed open source application: thus no copyleft restrictions. Also no constructs of "freemium" at this moment of writing.

      carlin5 It's totally transparent about what it does and it can handle any situation you get yourself into. I've had GitKraken die on me after I pruned dead branches because it was still referencing them for something. I don't think GitKraken is good for learning git or for people who like to work both in the command line and GUI.

      3psilon Probably the best FOSS alternative for Linux. Not as fancy in terms of GUI, but still easy to use and it's much faster.
