Bespin is an open source project from Mozilla Labs. The project is an extensible code editor using HTML 5 technology. It is available with the hosted version as well as one that can be installed on your own servers. Developers can integrate Bespin’s embedded code editor in their own apps. Like other Mozilla projects, it is also powered by developers around the globe via extensions and plugins. Mozilla’s cloud is used to store files. While using this IDE you can view the output of your code in browser. The code editor is a bit complex and will take some time for you to get comfortable. To use Bespin, one should be familiar with command lines.
Bespin requires an HTML 5 property, called canvas, to run in the browser — so it will not work in Internet Explorer as IE doesn’t support this property. The browsers supported by Bespin are Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Chrome.
PHPanywhere is a free web based code editor which enables programmers to code their projects in browsers. It enables users to write PHP code in the browser and save in their own space using an FTP connection. The web application has a fully integrated FTP explorer which let you create, delete and browse through your web space. It also allows you to change file permissions of files and folders. PHPanywhere doesn’t install a single file on your computer and runs directly from your browser. The IDE still lacks the debug feature and can’t compile your written code.

NotaPad is a very simple web based code editor based upon the CodeTextArea widget. NotaPad is in very early stages of its development as the version of code editor is 0.1 alpha. The supported features are keyboard shortcuts, bookmark and export. The export feature allows users to write code in the editor and with a single click, the written code can be downloaded to the local space of the user. The bookmark feature is a very nice feature which gives the options of bookmarking different lines of code. The option is pretty useful when you are working with a large amount of code with hundreds of lines and you want to remember some lines for revision.
