SourceTree vs Sublime Merge: What are the differences?

What is SourceTree? 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.

What is Sublime Merge? *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.

SourceTree and Sublime Merge can be categorized as "Source Code Management Desktop Apps" tools.

"Visual history and branch view" is the primary reason why developers consider SourceTree over the competitors, whereas "Speed" was stated as the key factor in picking Sublime Merge.

Decisions about SourceTree 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.
