Usually, I need to deal with more than one repository at the same time. For example, I’m working in a feature for product A, which has more than one submodule. Meanwhile, we receive a request to fix a bug for product B, so I switch to another repository. At the end of the day, I need to make sure all my changes are submitted to our git server. If I have tabs, it’s quite simple. All the info I need is at a glance. Otherwise, I have to open all repositories to check if there is something to merge or to push.
I don’t know if you work for a big company with several products, but it’s our routine.
p.s. GitKraken has just released a new version. Can you guess what’s new? TABS!
