I tried to activate it but nothing happened. How do you use it?

You have to explicitly give focus to the 2 panes you want to compare (they do not
need to be both visible at the same time). This usually requires something like clicking in them;
I'm not sure just opening them is enough. But I really ought to add that to the next version.

Well, I guess I am missing something cardinal as I now have both files
visible in 2 panes.

I tried with or without selection but I'm not getting any response.

Oh OK. First of all, I uploaded a new version which is much improved.
Second, all that happens is the cursor in each window is moved to the location of the first difference.

So what do you do after the first change? move the cursor to a common place
in both panes and continue?

Pretty much. I usually use this to determine if 2 pieces of code are the same.
What trips me up tends to be blank lines. In a future version, I should add an option
for ignoring white space.
