GitHub Notifier vs LGTM: What are the differences?

GitHub Notifier: Chrome notifications for GitHub (open source). Under the hood, this application simply polls GitHub web endpoints (/pulls|/issues|/releases) of projects you specify, it doesn't require OAuth tokens or credentials entering into the extension; LGTM: A simple pull request approval system for GitHub. LGTM is a simple pull request approval system using GitHub protected branches and maintainers files. Pull requests are locked and cannot be merged until the minimum number of approvals are received. Project maintainers can indicate their approval by commenting on the pull request and including LGTM (looks good to me) in their approval text.

GitHub Notifier and LGTM belong to "Tools for GitHub" category of the tech stack.

GitHub Notifier and LGTM are both open source tools. LGTM with 936 GitHub stars and 92 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than GitHub Notifier with 42 GitHub stars and 10 GitHub forks.
