Compare Web Pages
I am searching for a tool which will compare all the items in a web page. Not only text, font styles, font sizes, styles, images etc etc,, Is there a tool that can identify all the differences between two web pages ?
I have found few tools, Winmerge to compare contents, diffdaff to compare HTML... Please help me. Thanks.
actually i couldn't find a proper tool yet. I'm looking for a tool that will visually compare two rendered web pages and highlight the differences.
If you save the page source to a text file, and compare the text files, then any text comparison tool will work.
This is one way we do regression testing for one of our web applications.
Joe is right, that's a good cheap way of checking the file contents delivered to a browser are the same. Depending on the structure of the pages, you might want to check dependent files (css etc) too.
Is that all you're looking to achieve? Or are you looking to check the visual rendering of a page in different browsers?
PDiff or Wraith
Try PDiff or Wraith and integrate into your existing automated regression suite.

Tools to compare the contents
1. Web Page Comparison Tool to Compare 2 web pages - This will generate a report with the mismatches of the contents in the site.
2. 'WinMerge' / Araxis Merge - Can compare folders and files, presenting differences in a visual text format.
Tools to compare the HTML of the pages
1. Firefox Add on 'PageDiff'
2. 'DiffDaff' - free utility that enables a direct comparison between two files, folders, or web sites and shows the differences line by line.
Apart from above we can use,
BrowserShots - Check Browser Compatibility, Cross Platform Browser Test - Browsershots
This is a tool for checking how the website looks like in a wide range of different browsers.
ChangeDetection - Compare Web Pages -
This compares the contents of the two web pages and changes/differences will show up on the first web page itself.
