Personally, I use mostly command line git and on occasion a little bit of gitk if I get lost between all the branches. I die a little (read: a lot) inside when I have to help my team members with git and they adamantly stick to TortoiseGit. It's a prime example of the UI improving discoverability at the expense of performance (and even then the individual actions tend to get lost between all the numerous possible actions).
It is similar for committing, where checking diffs and partial adding is part of the process.
Using an IDE or GUI might help to streamline this. I do not use any, so I don't know if they do this.
Maybe I should analyse my shell history for sequences?
