I love side by side view as many others, but I refused to use this until now.
Currently: Whole file is parsed and can take a while (yes, we have very big legacy files ;) Too many scroll bars (at least 1 horizontally, 2 vertically) * the complete window is refreshed
Better: Show side by side diff in the same frame, and only load the differences like it is done in the standard view. Extending to the complete file should be an option.

With respect to showing just the part of the file that changed:
- mergely does not seem to support that currently

It could perhaps be discussed with mergely upstream. Perhaps a feature could be contributed there so it can be used here.
