Git Extensions is a toolkit aimed at making working with Git on Windows more intuitive. Git Extensions is also available on Linux and Mac OS X using Mono. The shell extension will integrate in Windows Explorer and presents a context menu on files and directories. There is also a Visual Studio plugin to use Git from the Visual Studio IDE. There are video tutorials for some basic functions on YouTube and links for the Git Extensions download page, source code, and documentation here:

I have used many other git GUIs (SourceTree, SmartGit) and GitExtensions is vastly superior. It has some trouble dealing with large binary files (have to go to command line for this) but for all the micro operations you have to do when merging, GitExtensions gives you power unparalleled by any other UI. One of the reasons I dislike developing on a Mac is because I don't have GitExtensions there and am forced to use SourceTree. Easy to use, powerful, UI centered around the branching tree, and frequently updated.
The most convenient git frontend.
Great Project, Thanks!
This GUI severely lowers the threshold for newcomers to Git, especially for people (like me) who easily get overwhelmed with the syntaxes of multiple programming languages and other "systems" that govern our everyday working life, along with the engineering, math and all stuff that comes along with it. However, still, it also pays off to know a bit about Git "bash" commands.
Support every required functionality via GUI. Incredibly lightweight. Best of all, it integrates with context menu and visual studio (at-least toolbar) which makes it better than source tree. Makes you no need to use git bash again.
