      pros, cons and recent comments
      It's a very well known website. I used it before I knew of glitch, and can run terminal applications! It's very versatile, and supports lots of programming languages. Code completion is already listed, so I can't say anything about that. It has a community like glitch's, with forums to discuss problems.
