Favorite web-based git repository

Simple question, what is your favorite online git repository and why?
bonus points if you relate it to the fact that we will mostly be using this for private repositories.
extra bonus points if you say something other than GitHub (nothing against Github, just looking for some variety in my research and already understand benefits of GitHub.. and there pricing <-- :( )

Several friends swear by Bitbucket.

I'm very interested in this question myself. I have been looking at this one https://www.codebasehq.com/ which also comes with a free https://www.deployhq.com/ account. It has a free plan and the 'tiny' plan is slightly cheaper than Github's 'micro' plan.

I haven't tried either myself but I'm looking forward to what others suggest.

I forgot to add. Treehouse's student perks page also has a deal with Codebase as well. http://teamtreehouse.com/perks

thanks.
I like codebase's project management, may have to give them a try. We were using CodeProjects Workspaces which had some project management built in and really liked it, but they are discontinuing it.

just as a follow up. We ended up going with bitBucket for now. I tried a couple other services, but getting unlimited private repositories, issue tracking, wiki, and that we can connect with other apps, all for free under 5 users, it was almost a no brainner.
