    • its got lovely windows context menu file comparison option. it gets my vote. Guest • Jun 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • As BC and unlike Meld, it align changes by adding lines, which is a key feature to visually compare code. Meld explicitly states it does not do that. kdiff3 also supports multiple platforms (as stated). Unfortunately, it does not support on-click line/block merging (merge from side to side visually) like Meld or BC. Guest • Jan 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I would like to suggest kdiff3 as the best alternative selection for Beyond compare, esp. folder compare and sync! Guest • Feb 2016 • 3 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
