As in Trevor's description, the advantage of being able to create new 
branches for experimental work can't be overstated.

Consider: you have a working project and want to try making some changes 
that may or may not work. And that may or may not stop existing things 
from working. Or maybe you just want to try some A-B testing and be able 
to create two different versions. Or create a new version and be able to 
do some performance benchmarking.

All without messing with your existing product code.

If it works you can merge the branch into the main code. If not then 
just dump the branch and you haven't lost anything except some time.

I also use tagging in git to set release values, so that I can easily 
see what's changed from one release to the next.
