Visually compare text by dragging
Authored by: philostein on Jul 07, '10 02:20:13PM
On a similar note, text can be compared for equality by hitting ⌘E (Use Selection for Find) with some selected text, moving to another window, and hitting ⌘G (Find Next). Equal text will be highlighted in different apps, windows and with different font sizes.

Quicker than dragging, but it won't show where any differences are in unequal text. I'll definitely be using djdawson's tip also.
