Web-based diff-ing no longer seems to give in-line highlights of the changes

      Description

      Hi Bitbucket team,

      Until a couple of weeks ago the diff tool on the bitbucket website was brilliant - on both the full commit view, and the side-by-side view for an individual file's changes, I was getting highlighted in-line diffs - and the diff-ing algorithm seemed really good at spotting a minimal set of changes to show in that view. Fantastic for code reviews etc.

      Something seems to have changed a couple of weeks back and now I'm only getting line by line diffs.

      In other words, if only one character changes in a line, I'm getting it showing as the old line was removed, and the new line was added - without any highlight of that single character change.

      It doesn't seem to be browser-specific.

      Was this a deliberate change? I can't find an option to turn it back on - sorry if I'm missing something!

      Cheers
