If you are just testing, you don't need to fork or have a github account at all.  Forking is for those that want to check in code.

If you just want to get the latest, you have a couple options:

1. Browse to the main github repo, select the branch you want, and then hit the ZIP button.  You don't need git on your computer.

2. Using git command line on your computer, copy the https url in the edit box and paste as argument to git clone.  There are more steps to keep it up to date and change branch.

Based on approach you select thee questions may not be relevant.
