Summary: Diff large files. GUI. Cross-platform. Lots of features. Highly recommended.
Strength: • Hexadecimal (Hex) Editor. Which is helpful for doing reverse Engineering. • Cross-platform. Linux, Mac OS, Windows • Easy to use Graphical User Interface (GUI) • Supports very large files up to 2^64 bytes (2 ExaByte) • Compare two large files side by side (diff). Optionally list and search all diff. • Very fast search • Use small amount of RAM • Do not create temporary files. So it used a very small amount of storage space. • Dark or bright theme • Multilingual 15 languages • Open source. If you are not familiar with "open source", it means this software has both stronger security & stronger privacy. Because its code is publicly available for review and contributions to GitHub at https://github.com/EUA/wxHexEditor or at SourceForge at https://sourceforge.net/p/wxhexeditor/code/ • Attractive GNU General Public License version 2. This means the software code of this extension is owned and supported by a friendly not-for-profit community. Instead of a for-profit corporation. https://sourceforge.net/projects/wxhexeditor/

Official site wasn't updated for a long time, but in sourceforge discussions section I found a link to https://github.com/EUA/wxHexEditor - current official repository.
Development continues, so if you can compile it - you can get a fresher version.
