I'm from a Subversion background and, when I had a branch, I knew what I was working on with "These working files point to this branch".

But with Git I'm not sure when I am editing a file in NetBeans or Notepad++, whether it's tied to the master or another branch.

There's no problem with git in bash, it tells me what I'm doing.

To display the current branch you're working on, without the other branches being listed, you can do the following:

git rev-parse --abbrev-ref HEAD
