It's possible that this is a good tool, but a good tool with HORRIBLE documentation is basically useless. Here's my experience: I'm on my Google Drive, and I would like to create a Java document. So I install Shift Edit, and then it puts me into a pretty good Java editor. Great. Then I try to save my work, and it tells me that I have to create a Site first. What??? I'm in Google Drive. I don't want a site, I want to save the Java file that I just created into my Google Drive, and it's asking me about Sites. What the heck is it talking about? I'm not making a web site, I'm editing a Java file. But one of the options for "Site" seems to be GDrive. I got to Shift Edit from my GDrive. Why isn't that the default? Anyway, I try to click on GDrive, and it tells me that there's an error. I have to disconnect from my Google Drive. What? Okay. I do that, and now Shift Edit is uninstalled. This is absolutely going in circles. What a piece of junk. Somebody spent many hours creating this software. Can't they spend 5 minutes documenting how it's supposed to work? Horrible, horrible, horrible.

It sounded cool, but as soon as i started doing stuff it asked me to pay, which it doesn't advertise here.

Hijacks file associations that have nothing to do with development and wants your personal info and money the first time you double click. Uninstalled.

Great ide - but has discontinued free version, so i'm looking elsewhere. UPDATE: i've now looked elsewhere and after extensive research i've discovered: 1. this is by far the best online editor for chrome (in fact, it's the only one i can find with builtin ftp and full wysiwyg design features) 2. the developer is extraordinarily responsive and helpful and bends over backwards to fix problems and accommodate requests for new features (not something i could ever say about dreamweaver) 3. it's great value and i will henceforth be subscribing!

You'll need to download this before you pay $6/month for what you thought you just downloaded
