Text Compare now includes line numbers!

Text Compare lets you instantly see the difference between two pieces of text.

Compare text by paragraph, word or character. Simply paste in two pieces of text, and Text Compare will compare them and highlight what has been inserted in or deleted from the original text. Text Compare also includes support for showing line numbers when comparing by paragraph.

Tiny, fast, and laser-focused, this is a native macOS app that does exactly, and only, what it says on the tin. No bloat, no extraneous features.

Text Compare respects your time, attention and privacy. No annoying badges, notifications or startup items. App Sandboxing entitlements guarantee that it can't make or receive network requests, or interact with anything on your Mac outside of its container.

Full support for light and dark mode. Intel and Apple Silicon compatible.
