Is there any tool or method available to compare same table from two different Databases?

I'm using tablediff command. Though it is useful I would like to know is there any free tool present to see the difference visually.

If you have or know please do share.

What kind of differences are you looking for?  Just trying to find whole rows that exist in one but not the other?  Or are you looking for columns which have been added/removed from one relative to the other?  Or, perhaps just rows where a value has changed in one table but not the other.  Perhaps all of the above?

I will use the database compare shipped as part of VS 2010 and above versions, if you do have that then use it, it is a free tool.
