Default Beyond Compare 3 (Windows and Linux)

I just noticed version 3 of Beyond Compare is out. For those who don't know what this is, it's a program for side by side comparison of file or folder contents. I bought version 2 a few years ago to manage modified vBulletin code, because it allowed me quickly see which lines of code differed from an unmodified file. I also used it to compare HTML files on a website with HTML files on my computer via FTP. This program payed for itself the first day I used it. Also, I liked it better than competing Windows programs because it strengthened the side by side comparison with an above/below view at the bottom that showed more code.

I no longer have projects where I need to use this, but I remember liking this program so much I'm curious about the new version. Is anyone here using it?

No, but I do use the compare function in BBEdit for located altered code in vB and other types of documents.

Me too. It's much easier to follow than the vBulletin comparison screens.
