Editors' Review

If you develop software for a living, you know it isn't hard to find free differencing tools. But if you do a lot of diff/merge work, especially across platforms, it can pay to, well, pay. Guiffy is a Java-based diff/merge tool with serious muscle and a much easier, more intuitive interface than you'll find on any freeware package. Not only does it work with more than 150 file formats from several platforms (Windows, Linux, Unix, and Mac OS), it also provides a trustworthy three-way merge feature called SureMerge. Since merging sometimes forces developers to stop working until the postmerge code has been checked by hand, a "smarter" three-way merge can greatly reduce overall development time. In addition to using Guiffy as a stand-alone utility, you can incorporate it into your own change-management products. Still not convinced? Compare Guiffy with its competitors and see for yourself; it's easy to spot the differences.

"How many ways can you say slow."

April 15, 2012  |  By RickTheBugMan

 |  Version: Guiffy 9.6 build 319

Pros

None that I can see.

Cons

Like so many Java based application it is slow and primitive. It takes forever (by that, I mean I ran out of patience) to open a folder with any significant number of entries. Even with a folder containing just a few entries it took tens of seconds to open. The interface is text based which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing if it had other qualities to recommend it. I'm guessing that GUI to the Java community means something different than it does in my world.
