In Visual Studio 2010 you can compare a local file with the latest version/workspace version. This opens up a diff viewer showing the two versions of the file side by side with the lines that are changed or added highlighted.
Is there a way to improve this diff viewer to show (with e.g. a darker background color) which part of the line exactly was changed (like for example on github).
This would be especially useful if for example a typo was corrected in a long line of text. Now I have to squint for a long time at the two lines before I spot the difference, just having the letter that was changed highlighted would help me tremendously.
