Here is an web tool which we came across, slightly different and unique in concept. DiffNow.com, allows you to spot the difference between any two MS Office files. All you have to do is upload the files and click ‘Compare’, the result will be displayed in just a few seconds.
Not only MS Office files, you can compare two web pages, PowerPoint presentations, PDF files and even plain texts. Once you’ve added the two files or texts that you want to compare, click on the ‘Compare’ icon and within a few seconds the difference is displayed in pink color. Have a look at the example below, this would give you an idea about using the web tool.
I entered the texts to be compared in the space provided (You can upload two files to be compared, enter URL for comparison between two web pages and even enter plain texts). See snapshot below.
You can clearly see the ‘Compare’ icon. Click on it and the result will be displayed in just a few seconds. Our result is shown below.
As you can see, the different and similar words appear in similar colors, that is, all the similar words in the above text are in brown color whereas all the different words are in pink color. You can also choose the colors according to your preferences.
For comparing MS Office or PDF files, upload them one by one and for comparing two web pages, just copy-paste their URLs in the space provided.
