          Priority: normal
            Bug ID: 4419
                CC: mercurial-devel at selenic.com
          Assignee: bugzilla at selenic.com
           Summary: Make side-by-side diff easier to find
          Severity: bug
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Windows
          Reporter: cowwoc at bbs.darktech.org
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: 3.1.2
         Component: hgweb
           Product: Mercurial

The side-by-side functionality is very difficult to discover. Consider:

1. User clicks on a changeset: http://www.selenic.com/hg/rev/a36625ef1f35
2. User clicks on a specific file:
http://www.selenic.com/hg/file/a36625ef1f35/hgext/largefiles/overrides.py
3. User clicks on comparison:
http://www.selenic.com/hg/comparison/a36625ef1f35/hgext/largefiles/overrides.py

I propose adding a "visual diff" link alongside "line wrap" on top of each diff
to toggle between the two modes, and making the side-by-side view the default.
