    No panels, icons and tool bars, it directly focuses on Quick Edit (ctrl+e) in line providing context-sensitive access to your content without taking you away from the code.

  • Runs in browser

    It is designed to run and sync with browser, you can code and see the visual display in browser. So you are allowed to design and develop in the same environment where you will deploy it.
