One thing I don't like about Git aliases is that when you are on a new environment (coworker laptop, remote server, etc.) they won't work. So it's better to remember original commands.
For my day to day this is generally not an issue, but if I were on a co-worker's machine or a remote server and for some reason I couldn't remember a git command, I'd use the Google 😉
My personal take on this is that for many people, you're on a small set of machines 95% of the time, so it's worth it to optimize your setup on that set of machines.
However, I know that my experience isn't universal - if most of the time you're logging into a large number of machines or machines that are ephemeral in nature, my take doesn't really apply!
