git-cola is a sleek and powerful git GUI, powered by Python.

MSysGit:GitCheetah - A cross platform filemanager plugin. It was started as a Windows explorer extension so the standard gui tools (namely Git Gui, Gitk History, Git Gui Blame) of Git would be available from the filemanager.

CollabNet GitEye - This free desktop app combines a simple-to-use graphical Git client with central visibility into essential developer tasks such as defect tracking, agile planning, code reviews and build services. This is free but NOT open source.
