This is basically a wiki system that has been specialized (slightly in function, mostly in content) to provide information comparing similar things.  For example, if you are interested in the difference between "brass" and "bronze", or between "disinfecting" and "sterilizing".

What is Diffen?

Diffen is a free collection of comparisons that people all over the world help write and maintain.

Diffen is informational:
What is the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R? What is the difference between a pub and a bar? An alligator and a crocodile? What is the difference between 401(k) and IRA? Treasuries and bonds? AMD Turion and Athlon processors? How is a Pentium Core 2 Duo different from Pentium Dual Core? How does the work environment at IBM compare with working at Microsoft? How does living in Seattle compare with living in Amsterdam? What is the difference between a Plasma TV and an LCD TV? Cal Tech and UCLA? Yankees and the Red Sox? Diffen can help you find (and write!) all these comparisons and more.

Faily random website, but pretty good, certainly handy if your looking at buying a product, asnd you know something that is close to that product, but dont know the difference.

Certainly worth bookmarking  thumbs up

+1 For the find
