Description _ gtzabari 2011-10-10 14:55:51 UTC
The current "diff" UI makes it difficult to compare long-lines of text (source-code is full of them!). Beyond Compare deals with this nicely by displaying the two lines being compared at the bottom of the diff window. See:

Notice how the lines span the entire width of the window.
