Tim has an add-in Hex compare viewer available free to registered users which will show you the hex differences in the first 1 megabytes of two files. At some point I believe he intends to expand that to the entire file. If you haven't discovered it yet, you can selectively synchronize the contents of two text files. This can be very handy for source programs.

He also has an add-in version viewer which will automatically show you the version differences of EXE, DLL, SYS, VXD, etc. files, instead of the contents. And he has a large-file compare viewer that doesn't have the 32,000 line restriction, but you can't yet edit with it, (good for comparing exported registry files, but of course ZTree can do that, so I think it's better to stay with the default editing version, depending on your needs).
