    After going to GitFork, I can see that SourceTree was extremely hard and not straightforward to use. Fork is a faster, lightweight and more powerful alternative.

    GitKraken is great but really heavy on resources. Fork does not rely on Electron, making it lighter on memory. Moreover, it does not ask for an account.

    Doesn't support GitHub OAuth login. Requires API key instead. This is significantly less secure than competing products.

    This alternative is disputed. GitHub Desktop is still a legitimate alternative to Sourcetree, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Good GUI to local repos and (obviously) very good integration with GitHub.
