I'm looking for a simple text comparison tool. Something which just compares two quick text, I don't care about file comparison, just quick text side by side comparison.

In TextWrangler, there is a command "Compare Two Front Documents". TextWrangler is not just a simple text comparison tool, but it's free, and if you need to edit text anyway, it's a useful feature.
