I am not satisfied with the output of git log and any of its optional arguments: too much information or too little, and hard to read. I created a simple alias that outputs one line per commit with, in order: hastag, day and time of commit, (branch, tag info), and commit message. This is all one needs 99% of the times.

The alias also colorizes the columns, outputs the last 20 commits by default but accepts an optional -xxx argument at the end to output a different number of commits (xxx is such number). The command to store it globally is the following:
git config --global alias.logs "log -20 --pretty='%C(yellow)%h%C(cyan) %ai%C(auto)%d %Creset%s'"
git logs and enjoy!
