Diffuse is the fastest Linux-based visual diff tool listed here on AlternativeTo, but it lacks some critical features:

  1. You can't display the files on top of each other. Files are always shown side-by-side.
  2. There's no word wrapping for long lines.
  3. There's no way to see the differences in lines longer than the window width. Combined with 1. and 2. above, this makes the tool impossible to use for files with long lines (e.g. CSVs).
  4. You can't customize the keyboard shortcuts.
  5. There's no special display for moved lines. Meld's display is much nicer - it shows a bubble starting from the source line and ending on the destination line: Meld moved line bubble

The only native Linux tool I've found to diff in under one second two CSV files that only differ in the date format. See https://sourceforge.net/p/kdiff3/bugs/217/ for details.

Diffuse is the only open source linux application that enables manual alignment. kdiff3 has the functionality, but it is less ergonomic.

On a long text file, with redundant text, the tool is lost. Diffuse enables you to tell that line 123 of file 1 must be aligned with line 153 of file 2, and then relaunch the comparison
