Never used and am not going to because it seems to be just another Electron (i.e. cancer that kills desktop apps) app.

Pros:

None

Cons:

Looks like it's Electron-based, which is a MAJOR turnoff.

Just FYI, it's not Electron. "Sublime Merge is built on the same custom platform as Sublime Text". And if you have tried SublimeText, it has native speed/repsonsiveness.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't use Electron (or a browser render engine). It uses the same engine as Sublime Text. Check out: https://www.sublimetext.com/blog... or https://www.reddit.com/r/program... for reference. You can ask directly if you want https://twitter.com/wbond/status...

Not even trying it out and just assuming it's based off electron is just dumb. If you don't know anything about it then just leave it

This tool is wonderful! Sublime is the polar opposite of an Electron app, although because it is visually attractive it could easily be mistaken as such. The Sublime editor on which this tool is based is fast even on my ten year old Atom netbook; lean and mean on the inside, while keeping all the polish on the outside. Sublime Merge also has unique and useful features for Git users that aren't found in other graphical clients. I'm blown away by this release -- try it, you will not be disappointed.

As it is very young (released 4 days ago) it doesn't have as much features as Gitkraken for example... I love Sublime Text for it's speed! And as you can imagine they share the same engine! So it's super fast!

I think Gitkraken takes about 30 seconds for me to open, and this little boy just opens instantly!!! I was so amazed!

The design is pretty good too. Similar to Sublime Text's default theme. But a custom theme support would be cool... Also the dark theme is license-only which sucks.

Pros:

Very fast, not Electron based, clean

Cons:

Lack of features
