Never heard of it before. Tried all the others like tower, kraken etc. and settled on sourcetree. Haven't had issues, but I will give fork a try.

I personally prefer CLI for things like git. I've had too many bad experiences in the past with gui tools. I feel safer knowing exactly what commands I'm issuing

There's a button on Git Fork that shows you what commands it's calling underneath.

One of the reasons people prefer CLI over GUIs is the lack of difference between them. A cli is the same wherever, GUIs vary widely from usability to launching. Some have good features some have bad.

Also useful to know if you have to go on site and they don't have a GUI.

Skip to do what you want with CLI with a bit of practice. Git isn't too bad to learn on the CLI anyway.

I know CLI and I use it when the GUI doesn’t work. I just find typing the commands every time very tedious. I’d rather click to do what I want.

Agree with you. I had such cases too, for ex. Sourcetree sometimes didn't want to launch at all. It sucks.

Sourcetree is terrible don't use that. If you’re on Windows or Mac give Git Fork a try. I used Sourcetree before I loved how it looked and how simple it was but it was slow and buggy it actually made me switch to command line. I just don’t like typing out the commands all the time.

I love Sourcetree. It got better. For cherry picking very handy.

Use cherry-picking with interactive flag.
