It would be great if in ACR you could do side by side comparisons. For example, with white balance. It would be so helpful if you could see several various WB settings on the same image side by side to help decide which one is best.

So maybe have a snapshot feature where when you click it, it takes a snapshot and adds it to a window pane and then after you take all your snapshots there could be a View All snapshots button or something like that where you could view them side by side

There is a 2-up side-by-side mode. Are you asking for more than 2?

The issue with a lot more than 2 is understanding what the settings of the various instances are.

And what are you trying to achieve by an n-up side-by-side mode for WB? Are you trying to determine which WB looks best? What sort of shots are you dealing with where a good WB isn't obvious by looking at the current view?
