Visualizing git history

I've been using git for version control on a new project. Instead of needing a connection to the server (as CVS and SVN do), changes are stored locally.

Every once in a while, I want to poke back the history. git ships with a graphical repository viewer, but I like gitx better.

git makes branching off to try something super easy, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite features. I can create a branch quickly, try something out, switch away and come back later if I want.

Using gitx to view my repository history, I can quickly find where branches diverged and it's just kinda neat to look at.
