A fork is a divergence in a software project where one codebase becomes two. The second codebase is said to have forked from the first.

This usually happens when the original project makes changes that a significant number of users/developers dislike. e.g. Palemoon forked Firefox, Cinnamon forked Gnome Shell and MATE forked Gnome2.
