Are there tools that exist for reviewing code patches? Just viewing a textual diff is incredibly hard.

@samathy every tool I've ever used basically comes down to side-by-side diffs, usually with colour coding to show the specifics.

@samathy for git diffs specifically I use the GitLens plugin for Visual Studio Code. You can show side by side diffs for each file in a commit.

It depends a lot on your setup.
But I know Jetbrains has an integrated merge-conflict resolution tool on their IDE's.
Of course if you are searching for somethig more open, maybe Gitlab integrated code review could fit.
