    "Functional and fast"

    April 2, 2012  |   By jkball

    Version: WinMerge 2.12.4

    Pros

    It's free and open source. It has plugin support. With the xdocdiff plugin you can quickly compare MS Word and Excel documents (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx) as plain text. Integrates well with Tortoise CVS/SVN. Excellent performance.

    Cons

    Plugins are disabled by default. xdocdiff plugin is a separate download. UI is a bit dated. No support for 3-way compare/merge operations.

    Summary

    An invaluable tool once you have it set up the way you want it. Take a look at KDiff3 if you need to do 3-way merges.

    "awesome, reliable, better than my IDE"

    November 30, 2011  |   By alexx.stehman

    Version: WinMerge 2.12.4

    Pros

    This tool provides a FAST, easy-to-use, friendly interface for diffing files. Additionally, it has never failed me. It has never crashed and/or corrupted my files.

    Cons

    There are none that come to mind.

    Summary

    Highly recommend this tool anytime you need a GUI diff tool.

    "Love! This software is a gem!"

    November 16, 2011  |   By Lahodaweb

    Version: WinMerge 2.12.4

    Pros

    If you have to compare text files you reached the realm. Easy to use. Nice visuals.

    Cons

    Why do I need to enter 10 chars minimum of cons if there aren't any?

    Summary

    A well designed tool.

    "Performs as promised, easy to use, very fast"

    December 21, 2010  |   By silviu.zilberman

    Version: WinMerge 2.12.4

    Pros

    Marks differences between lines and in-line, user friendly

    Cons

    Wish it could compare similar directories and mark files that are changed.

    Summary

    Highly recommended.

    "This tool is a must have if you develop websites"

    November 19, 2010  |   By coachgm41

    Version: WinMerge 2.12.4

    Pros

    I have to deal with 100s of files for the websites I build and this utility is one of my most important. The keyboard commands make this better than most merge utilities.

    Cons

    Nothing. I love this software. And its free! Its a crime. I would pay good money for this tool.

    Summary

    A friend showed me this tool a few years ago and I owe him big. It has saved my tail so many times I can't say. I certainly like the diff tool that comes with SVN but every time I use it I say "dang I need to take two minutes to config SVN to use winmerge instead!". I love this tool!

    "An invaluable tool to merge & match files & folders."

    September 7, 2010  |   By jamie_stephenson

    Version: WinMerge 2.12.4

    Pros

    Gives lots of control - you can move all or some changes in either direction

    Cons

    Filters are a bit fiddly to set up. (Hopefully someone has already done the ground work for you)

    August 13, 2010  |   By punchup

    Version: WinMerge 2.12.4

    Pros

    Great for comparing two files that are similar. Perfect for CSS style sheets that have slight differences and are messing up your site.

    Cons

    None. More than I expected.

    "Great powerful attractive file compare diff & merging"

    October 16, 2008  |   By Spike Toronto

    Version: WinMerge 2.8.6

    Pros

    Very powerful. Great interface makes it easy to use. Syntax colouring makes it easy to merge code. Alt-key commands for most (all?) operations, so can be very fast to review and merge on a change-by-change basis.

    Cons

    None found so far, except that it would be nice to be able to choose the default character set for xml files that don't specify it, but this is such an extreme condition that it isn't really worth implementing.

    Summary

    Haven't tried it under Vista yet, but it was amazingly useful under XP. Found it easier to use and more attractive than ExamDiff and other similar programs. Use it all the time for text and xml files. Downloading it for Vista now to help implement a Firefox searchplugin for Download.com.
