Visual Diff

I just came across 'kompare'. It's a great way to track minor differences between plain text files. Very pretty, side-by-side, visualization of the changes.

The display uses 3 colours:
  1. Green - new text on the left
  2. Blue - new text on the right
  3. Red - changed text/area
See the wikipedia page for more details.
