Or perhaps combine diff/u-diff in a single button,
like Merge/Record and leave it at bottom?
Or the other way around -- move 'Record only' to the last tab too.
I have no strong opinion on this, just think it should be consistent.

AFAIR, Windows standard wizards just rename 'Next' button to 'Finish'
on the last step of wizard.

Another feature I want is that tabbed mode remember last tab used,
but this I can easily code myself.
