DiffFork Reviews

Excellent. Best prose differ for OSX.

about DiffFork and P4Merge, DiffMerge, kdiff3 · · Helpful Not helpful

In search of diffing software for OSX, I have tried Beyond Compare, DiffMerge, FileMerge, P4Merge, Kdiff3, and now finally DiffFork. My primary use is diffing LaTeX documents, not code.

DiffFork is my favorite, by far. It has a three abilities not found anywhere else together: word wrap, editing (within the diff window), and sensible color coding. It also has an excellent graphical depiction of matched blocks, which is very useful when you have large blocks of text changed in weird ways.

The only thing it's missing is a zoomed out "map" of the changes, as can be found in software like Beyond Compare. This is only a minor deficiency, though.
