In other git clients when you’re working with a tree, you have to look at all the information presented to you without the possibility of adjusting it. That’s ok if it’s a small tree but it’s a different matter when the tree is large. In that case you can get a very cluttered screen where you have to make an effort to pick out the information you need.
In keeping with the GitAtomic philosophy which aims at giving you ultimate control, once again, You decide how much information you want to see.
