Fork vs Sublime Merge: 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, Sublime Merge is detailed as "*A Git client from the makers of Sublime Text *". A snappy UI, three-way merge tool, side-by-side diffs, syntax highlighting, and more. Evaluate for free – no account, tracking, or time limits.

Fork and Sublime Merge 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 2 developers mention "Speed" as the leading cause for choosing Sublime Merge.

Decisions about Fork and Sublime Merge

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.
