Ack, Beyond Compare is great! It compares binary files with hex view,
images and a lot more. Supports ZIP files and FTP, handles timezone
problems, has scripting capabilities... Worth more than 30USD, and
volume licenses are even cheaper, e.g. 13USD at 10..49.

Does this include Beyond Compare?

One thing BC doesn't support at the moment is three-way merge. That's
no problem for me, since I rarely have merge conflicts. The Tortoise
merge or merging manually in the sources is acceptable for me.

But if you say that KDiff3 is better than BC for other tasks, I'll
try it.
