Ever struggle to remember which branch is which? Here's a pimped out version of git branch that might help.

git branch --sort=-committerdate --format='%(HEAD) %(color:green)%(committerdate:relative)%(color:reset) %(color:blue)%(authorname)%(color:reset) %(color:yellow)%(refname:short)%(color:reset) %(contents:subject)'

It lists the branches with most recent commit date first and includes a bunch of useful info to help identify which branch is which.

Here's a screenshot (using source from the Ruby on Rails repo)

There are more examples of variations on the same theme on this Stack Overflow post. Might be handy if you want to play with tweaking the format.
