Interesting project, but I can't really see the point of running your IDE in your web browser.

I will admit that there are occasions when I've edited live code directly via vi (as much as I know I shouldn't), however that is as close to running my IDE in the cloud as I want to get.

Why shouldn't you edit your code via vi? (as long as you run it through screen)

It's not using vi thats the problem (not really sure why you'd want to screen it though - unless your internet connection is particularly unstable), it's the fact that it's live code.

Really there should be a dev and testing environment (on a busy commercial site anyway - personal web sites are a different matter). Thankfully it's very rare that I need to resort to such drastic measures.
