    Right now I am using HxD but its file compare sucks. It compares 1 byte at a time and only selects that byte in each file to show there is a difference. Is there one out there that highlights all the differences with color? I hate having to go byte by byte

    A program literally called 'Hex Edit' does exactly what you're talking about.

    It's the only reason I even have the program installed.
