Bespin 02.12.2009

Mozilla Labs, who apparently have a plethora of money and free time, developed an experimental editor using canvas and javascript called Bespin

It’s a neat technical achievement, but I don’t see the utility. My worst nightmare is being forced to code in random locations, same editor be damned. So the “access your editor from any browser!” isn’t terribly enticing.

The choice to use column view rather than tree is interesting, but for me, flawed. I can’t stand column view. It’s like a tree except you can only view a single branch at a time. What’s the point of that?

I do like their color theme though.
