Git Tools is a Visual Studio extension that integration a few more git tools to Visual Studio 2013/2015/2017, including git changes window, graphical git history viewer and menus to launch Git Bash, Git Extensions and TortoiseGit.
Git Tools 2022 supports the new Visual Studio 2022 extension architecture. It is compiled from the VS2022 branch.
Git Source Control Provider was the Visual Studio extension for Visual Studio 2008/2010. It integrates Git tools to Visual Studio as a source control provider since Visual Studio 2008 (Github Project) (InfoQ News). Starting in Visual Studio 2013, Microsoft has built the Microsoft Git provider into Visual Studio, but Visual Studio remains allowing only one active source control provider at a time. Git Tools is modified from the Git Source Control Provider to become a standalone extension. It is compatible with Microsoft Git and can run side by side with Microsoft Git.
