GitKraken vs Hyper: What are the differences?

Developers describe GitKraken as "Git GUI Client for Windows Mac and Linux built on Electron". The downright luxurious Git client for Windows, Mac and Linux. Cross-platform, 100% standalone, and free. On the other hand, Hyper is detailed as "On-Demand Container, Per-Second Billing". Hyper.sh is a secure container hosting service. What makes it different from AWS (Amazon Web Services) is that you don't start servers, but start docker images directly from Docker Hub or other registries.

GitKraken can be classified as a tool in the "Source Code Management Desktop Apps" category, while Hyper is grouped under "Containers as a Service".
