New Features
System Req.

Beyond Compare allows you to quickly and easily compare your files and folders. By using simple, powerful commands you can focus on the differences you're interested in and ignore those you're not. You can then merge the changes, synchronise your files and generate reports for your records.

You can compare entire drives and folders at high speed, checking just sizes and modified times. Or, thoroughly verify every file with byte-by-byte comparisons. FTP sites and zip files are integrated seamlessly, so you can update your website with the touch of a button.

Once you've found specific files you're interested in, Beyond Compare can intelligently pick the best way to compare and display them. Text files can be viewed and edited with syntax highlighting and comparison rules tweaked specifically for documents, source code, and HTML. Data files, executables, binary data, and images all have dedicated viewers as well, so you always have a clear view of the changes.

Here are some of the significant new features in Beyond Compare 3. Items flagged with Pro are available in the Professional edition of BC3.

The Standard Edition of Beyond Compare is a powerful, full-featured comparison tool. The Pro Edition includes all the Standard features and adds these:

  • 3-way text merging - Compares independent changes against a common ancestor to create new merged content.
  • Source control integration - BC3 pro adds commands for checking files in or out of SCC-compliant version control systems (Windows only).
  • Built-in SFTP support - Rather than relying on third-party solutions, BC3 Pro has integrated support for secure FTP protocols (SFTP and FTP over SSL).
  • Text replacements - In a Text Compare session, BC3 Pro lets you flag certain text replacements as unimportant differences. For example, ignore all instances where apple was replaced by orange.
  • Folder Compare alignment overrides - In BC3 Pro you can override how files are aligned in a Folder Compare session. For example, you could compare your .gif files on one side with .png files of the same name on the other side.
  • Registry Compare - Compares live registries, both local and remote, as well as registry files (Windows only).
