Git extensions: Show commit date instead of author date

Git extensions has an annoying default setting of showing when a commit was authored, rather than when it was committed to the repository. You can change this by right clicking on a commit, going to the view menu and deselecting ‘Show Author Date’.

You can also deselect ‘relative date’ to show an exact date-time for the commit instead of something like: ‘4 Months ago’.
