Go Google: gmail - the diff tool

I sent an SQL query to my friend and later I added a line to that query and sent it back. To my surprise, I observed that only the changed line appeared in black and rest in quoted text color (I guess that is purple). WOW!! Knowingly or unknowingly gmail turned out to be a diff tool for me. Then I did another experiment and this is the result.

Apple
Blackberry
Carrot
Desert fig
