The first time Jeff Atwood blogged about Beyond Compare, I tried it, didn’t like it, uninstalled it from my system and let it become a distant memory. But, pretty much everything Jeff talks about on his blog makes a helluva lotta sense, so the second mention tempted me to try it again and give it a chance to flourish. I’ve never looked back.
This is definitely one of those underrated tools, and really deserves more praise than it gets. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now, and it’s become an invaluable addition to my toolbox, especially in situations when deploying new code to webservers with content managed by Macromedia Contribute, or where SourceSafe wasn’t being used.
For $30 it’s a bargain, and highly recommended. Get it!
