Thanks for the reminder! I tested the first version of viewdiff and
found it too complicated to use, but now (with the selection form) I
consider it a "must have". Especially unexperienced users (not aware
of the "preview" button) store many revisions, and ViewDiff makes it
very easy to select the state before and after the session.

A side-by-side comparison as the Wikipedia link above shows would be a
nice option.
