Sometimes I have to compare two big but not huge files. These overlapping (log) files have e.g. a size of just 22 and 45 Megabytes).

When I start a comparison for these two files it lasts (even on a quad core i5 cpu system) for 4 minutes!!!
This is by far too much.

Kdiff3 should improve performance for bigger files.

    KDiff3 should have an option to disable the diff option "Try hard (slower)" automatically for files bigger that an user adjustable value. (e.g. 2 MB as default)
