Unselect all standard profiles & related permission
Often you want to deploy Admin profile and (x) custom profiles. Compare and deploy picks up hundreds of entries for standard profiles which are surplus to requirements. A single click way would be veryuseful.

Far and away, Profiles consume the vast majority of the count of comparable objects noted by Gearset. As our org does not use OOTB Profiles except for System Administrator, having Gearset download and compare the entries for Marketing User, Contract Administrator, and the like is a huge waste of time. I envision we could achieve a 30-40% improvement in Compare & Deploy time.
While it is true you can enumerate Profiles to include in the custom filters section; you have to do this for every filter and if adding a new Profile, update every filter. A master exclusion list of Profile you don't care about for every filter would be great.

It would be very useful to specify only the profiles you are interested for a particular comparison or deployment. Considering that selecting a particular element would also add all related profile settings into the deployment, that would be a game changer for me.
