Any differences between this and GIT Desktop?

GitKraken supports many other popular git hosting platforms such as Gitlab or Bitbucket, I believe Git Desktop is a client for Github only? If you compare GitKraken with other git clients perhaps there is not a huge difference on the tools but I prefer it for its epic GUI.

GitHub Desktop works with any got repository. I've used it with GitHub, gitlab, bitbucket.

I use GitKraken to squash commits on local before pushing to GitHub. It's much easier than using the command line but can't be done with Git Desktop
