"Functional and fast"

April 02, 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.

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

"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!
