SourceTree vs TortoiseGit: What are the differences?

Developers describe SourceTree 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. On the other hand, TortoiseGit is detailed as "The Power of Git in a Windows Shell". It is a Git revision control client, implemented as a Windows shell extension and based on TortoiseSVN. It is free software released under the GNU General Public License.

SourceTree and TortoiseGit are primarily classified as "Source Code Management Desktop Apps" and "Git" tools respectively.

    GitKraken is the best git client so far. The user interface is very friendly. Everything is easy to do with this tool. A branch tree vizualization is very clear. I've tried SourceTree and I got lost in such many panels. Also performance of SourceTree is not as goot as GitKraken. I like Sublime Merge but it doesn't have so many features as the other tools. I've choosen GitKraken and as bonus I got GitKraken Glo that is the next perfect tool.

    Tower

    Tower appears to be between GitKraken and SourceTree in detail, but gave two scary error dialogs when attempting to merge resulted in a conflict. Doing the same in SourceTree just worked and showed the conflict in its handy file view that's always visible (unlike Tower's mere "Merge branch 'X' into develop" message when the commit is selected).

    Both GitKraken and Tower lack the commit hash in their history overview, requiring one to select a commit to see it.

    GitKraken appears to be the only Windows 10 Git GUI suitable for night shifts, but like Tower is only free for 30 days, unlike SourceTree.

    Since being familiar to git CLI, I nearly never open it again except using it as a diff tool.
