Mozilla & Gecko clones Bespin is an experimental in-browser text/source-editor created by Mozilla Labs. Using any modern web browser (that means no IE, obviously), you can edit your projects from any computer, or with the added flexibility of the web - such as online collaboration, decentralisation, and extensibility.

FTP loop?

I don't have any problem with FTP in Emacs. I can open files transparently over several protocols. I imagine TextMate is the same. "Open with" doesn't sound impossible either. I think the author is looking for problems.

Yes! I am looking for problems. That's how things improve. We can't all be leaping on the latest great idea that appears before we know what's wrong with it ;)

I guess these particular things don't sound like problems, because they 'just work' for me. True, an in-browser editor *will* have problems. Browsers are slowly evolving to better support web apps, but they still have a long way to go.

Of course, there's always Java Web Start, but it doesn't get any love.
