  • (2020-09-23) Vishal Ghadge: Very useful extension. Instruction about allowing access to file url should be in overview.
  • (2020-07-26) Georry Wong: Cool!!!
  • (2019-05-22) Matt Spendlove: You'll need to "Allow access to file URLs" in the extension manager for this to work with local diffs. If you want auto formatting then add the patterns mentioned by Sandeep above.
  • (2018-06-28) Daniel Kennard: Works as expected, making the reading of GIT patch files much easier - I'll happily suggest the extension to the rest of my dev team
  • (2018-06-18) Rakesh Parmar: After a big online search, finally found what I was loking for, which works too :)
  • (2018-02-28) Sandeep Nadella: Exactly what I needed. Gave this file://[^/]*/.*[.]diff file://[^/]*/.*[.]patch in options to get it working on local diff files.
  • (2018-01-29) Jared Chu: not working at latest version
  • (2017-12-20) Mosh Feuchtwanger: Simple and works. Thanks!
  • (2016-05-20) Dini Chillet: Nice tool, we using it to display Clearcase patch
  • (2016-01-18) Doesn't work... Opened a patch file in chrome, tried clicking the icon, tried changing the settings to '*[.]patch', nothing.
  • (2015-10-15) shyam habarakada: I was trying to figure out how to diff a large pull request on github, because github was refusing to work with it due to the large number of files changing, and came across this. It worked like a charm. Thank you!
  • (2015-06-19) Dumindu Buddhika: Nice tool

  • (2014-10-24) Bartosz Rybacki: Great!
  • (2014-10-16) Jean-Marc Spaggiari: Nice. Seems to work well. Useful to have a quick view of a patch.

  • (2019-08-23, v:1.8) venkat raman: Allow Access to file URL
    After enabling this option also it is not working. Kindly check
  • (2017-06-06, v:1.8) Alex Iljin: View a patch file from local storage files
    Café Nâu report a problem about troubles to open a local files. I think the solution (to allow the extension to access local files by URL) must be placed somewhere on the overview page.
  • (2016-04-01, v:1.8) FarCrySeries: Cannot view patch file from local storage files
    I found that this tool can only view file from internet url, not local storage file on PC. Can you support file on PC? Thanks!
