    No install, easy to use. Works fast enough, even for a dissertation. Can be used at home or at the library without the need for 3rd party file-sharing.

    pros, cons and recent comments

    Live preview that allow to check the result whilel writing the .tex. Suggestion for LaTeX code. Lot of graphic interface for quick change of compiler and inserting TeX code. Update more frequently than other applications I tried.
