If you are a DevOps or Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) engineer, most probably you will be working with multiple clusters. You might also be working with multiple namespaces across these clusters. It can be quite time consuming to switch between contexts and namespaces while working with the kubectl command-line tool.

Kubernetes is quite popular nowadays and it is very common for people to work with Kubernetes clusters using kubectl as command-line interface. Most people prefer to work with kubectl instead of working with GUI based tools.
