      AWS Cloud9 vs ShiftEdit opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      It's like a virtual box embedded in a browser. Vou van even run vim inside their terminal emulator (well, you can't use any Ctrl-W or Ctrl-Q shortcut...) team is the one who created the ACE editor. And here we can see it at its fullest power, with vim mode and sublime-like UI. Truly awesome, you can setup a development web server and run the app (PHP, Python, Ruby, you name it), Almost like having a hosted virtual machine (which is what it is, in fact...)
