Fork vs SourceTree: What are the differences?
Developers describe Fork as "Fast and Friendly Git Client for Mac". Manage your repositories without leaving the application. Organize the repositores into categories. Fork's Diff Viewer provides a clear view to spot the changes in your source code quickly. On the other hand, SourceTree is detailed as "A free Git GUI client for Windows and macOS". Use the full capability of Git and Mercurial in the SourceTree desktop app. Manage all your repositories, hosted or local, through SourceTree's simple interface.
Fork and SourceTree can be primarily classified as "Source Code Management Desktop Apps" tools.
"One of the easiest and fastest git GUIs" is the top reason why over 6 developers like Fork, while over 199 developers mention "Visual history and branch view" as the leading cause for choosing SourceTree.
Zillow, PedidosYa, and Coderus are some of the popular companies that use SourceTree, whereas Fork is used by JustWatch, Lancaster Solutions, and Center for Open Science. SourceTree has a broader approval, being mentioned in 615 company stacks & 400 developers stacks; compared to Fork, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 7 developer stacks.
I explored many Git Desktop tools for the Mac and my final decision was to use Fork. What I love about for that it contains three features, I like about a Git Client tool.
It allows * to handle day to day git operations (least important for me as I am cli junkie) * it helps to investigate the history * most important of all, it has a repo manager which many other tools are missing.

Used by various PrometheanTV technical staff to interface and interact with the Git Source Control service.
Since being familiar to git CLI, I nearly never open it again except using it as a diff tool.
Used Source Tree to maintain version / commit / pull request , merge of codes for a team.
