When another user answers your question or edits an answer on your question, you get a friendly pop-up, like this:

When you click through, you get more information, which might look like this:

It would be nice to have a preview of this diff in the pop up (subject to certain practical restrictions).

We don't think there is enough space in the notification area to add a useful edit preview except for the most trivial edits.

It's also an edge case — edits are not very high volume, and you'll usually want to review them in detail.

Tagging as `wont-fix` for now…
