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:

  • The closest I've found so far to "TortoiseHg for Git" (which is by far the best GUI client for any DVCS I've seen). Which is ironic, given that there is a "TortoiseGit" (which I am not very fond of). Compared to TortoiseHg, Git Extensions could use some polish though to make the GUI more ergonomic to get on par with TortoiseHg (it's mostly minor things like borders and colors - yes, such things do matter), but overall I am quite fond of it.
