Our review

What we like

Desktop app for diffing text, images, binary, PDFs, and folders. Configurable comparison layout - side-by-side, fluid, in-line, or split view (images). Can ignore whitespace. Can be used as version control diff from the terminal or integrated into your IDE (JetBrains, VS Code, Android Studio, XCode, etc). Send files to ksdiff CLI to launch diff or trigger merges.

What we don't like

macOS only.
