For one thing there were no visible explosions.
For another there were no sounds of explosions before the collapse started.

1. The fact the steel at the top of the towers bent and collapsed seconds before collapse.
Thermite on the core and corner box columns would result in what you saw that day, whether you think that was the actual cause or not.
Loads would fail to redistribute and remaining columns would not be able to support their loads, resulting in a natural enough collapse until other
explosives were initiated (which can also be visibly identified; see this thread: www.abovetopsecret.com...
2. If the towers were brought down by CD, they would need POWERFUL explosives. Such as planes
Or just explosives that were actually efficient at taking out the support columns. The plane impacts didn't take out all that many.
3. To elaborate on powerful explosives - there would be way more than one or two puffs here and there
To elaborate on squibs, there were many more than just a few here and there, and they would have been predominantly "riding" the collapse wave (or
the collapse wave, more like it), which was obscuring by free-falling debris for virtually the entire time for both
Nonetheless, there are some images showing the collapse wave somewhat clearly, in which you can see the actual waves of squibs:
And the thread question: "How was the collapse of the towers different than a CD?"
Well, which CD are you talking about?
Just as you don't like to compare other buildings to the WTC (ie Windsor) because of structural differences, so are demolitions very different from
building to building. Different priorities, ultimate objectives, technology, etc.
