Gitk, git gui. They are quite powerful if not user-friendly. Their are a lot of menu options but they just provide me a visual tree and commit control, branch management and pushing are cli tasks along with rebase.

Git extensions is nice but it's commit controls, like most gui are poor. Each change should be explicitly pulled in and out of a commit.

Kdiff3 is terrible, possibly worst merge tool I've seen. Suggesting Meld but I don't use it as I us Vim.
