In Git Extensions, click "Checkout branch", select "Remote branch" and select a remote branch (which does not exist in local repository) from the dropdown list, and click "Checkout" button, a dialog will popup asking if want create a local branch with the same name that track's this remote branch, if click "Yes", a local branch the same as the remote branch will be created.

Does EGit offer the same function like this? As far as I have tried, when checkout a remote branch (which does not exist in local repository) under Git Repositories view, it seems not create or popup user to create a local branch as well.

If you click on a remote branch and select "Create Branch", then you have the option to checkout that new created local branch. It's the same functionality like in Git Extensions, just vice versa.
