Mozilla Bespin: Cloud code editing via browser
by Dave Rosenberg
BuzzBespin is a Mozilla Labs experiment that "proposes an open, extensible Web-based framework for code editing that aims to increase developer productivity, enable compelling user experiences, and promote the use of open standards."
While still a Mozilla Labs project, Bespin looks like an excellent representation of what I've called a "cloud editor," wherein developers can manipulate code directly, and the platform is aware of what to do, once the code is changed.
There are a number of browser-based editors already, but check out the video, and you'll see why Bespin is interesting.
