    "Cloud9 is a polished online IDE. My husband is a programmer, and it looks a lot like what he uses when he works, so I think it would be really great for someone looking to sync their work across the cloud and work from multiple machines."

    "I've tried out a handful of cloud coding IDEs and I think I would have to rank Codeanywhere up there in my top 5. Like most of these new cloud IDEs, Codeanywhere is a cloud development environment that I can setup and personalize for working on my projects. My favorite feature is the support of over 72 programming languages. This is nice for me. I think overall I felt the other options were a bit limited but it seems to do a good job with what I need it to do. I can work on the go without having to worry about where I am and if I have the proper tools setup because with Codeanywhere I can just access it and go to work."

    "I tried Koding, and I just didn't get the point. I can deploy a VPS with python installed in less than an hour, for almost no cost at all. Anyone I want can have a log in, and we can run IDEs locally. Koding just struck me as a solution for a problem that doesn't exist. I didn't even finish my free trial period."

    "Thinking about this, I would say that this is creative. This is great for the person that wants to develop their website and to add these features. The price is not bad for a month either. One thing that caught my eye was not having to install anything in order to access SourceLair. People with a chromebook and ipad can use this as well. I love that they gave those options."

    "I think Eclipse Che is a pretty well thought-out environment. I really liked the user guides on the website, clean and easy to follow, though it's fairly intuitive for developers to work with. It's very engaging."

    "Codio is the environment that I first learned to code and it holds a special meaning for me. There is a lot of flexibility and convenience to using Codio. I find Codio to still be the head of the class in cloud IDEs."

    "This is a great tool for getting command line access to your items in the cloud. It is a good developer tool to work on your projects and you don't need any other filters or such to have the command access needed. I found all the developer tools such as Java, Go, Python, Node.js, PHP and Ruby are all ready for you to use on your projects. The cloud shell is also hosted on Google and is safe and secure."

    "If you are interested in cloud computing then you must get to know Dirigible. It has it's own integrated application server that allows it to run SOAP based services. Dirigible has a great adoption rate and has become a main learning tool for students who have started their IT career with Javascript and HTML5 and life cycle management. Dirigible is a powerful toolkit that will really improve your runtime environment."

    "Not a bad starting IDE. They offer nice short tutorials to help you begin. There are better cloud IDEs though however, like Shiftedit, codeanywhere, Koding, and Codenvy that offer more functionality and reliability for a little price."

    "I'm on the fence about Stackhive. On the one hand, it supports Bootstrap and has a lot of useful features. You can design a website from your browser, so it's very convenient as well. You can try it out for free, and plans start from $8/month, with a 20% discount if you purchase a year subscription. On the other hand though, it seems like a knockoff of Webflow and suffers from being buggy and slow, at times."

    "Codenvy allows me to work on collaborative projects with my team members at work. We've been using it for a few months now and it's totally streamlined our workflow. I highly recommend it for cooperative projects."

    "A very good modular IDE that can run on Linux or Mac and can run on desktop or the cloud. Smooth and fairly easy to use, I've been toying around with it for the past few weeks and have no complaints."

    "A great code editor that supports a huge range of different languages. It's compatible with Windows, Linux, Mac and Chrome. So no matter what type of PC you're on, this should make it easy. It has many features so as auto indent, remote editing via Neutron Beam, Google drive support for multiple different accounts. This makes it easy to take your work with you nearly everywhere."

    "CodeTasty is so easy to use and comes in so many languages that you can't go wrong with it. I would choose this as one of the best cloud IDEs. This will definitely get the job done for you."

    "Great online IDE that has a lot of features for a lightweight, online IDE. It's not much to look at aesthetically, but it gets the job done."

    "Having options for code editing on the fly make development far faster and more convenient, which is why I've come to really appreciate JSFiddle. It includes a number of language options on web development, making it easy to quickly try out CSS, HTML, of JavaScript in the cloud. The clean interface and uncluttered environment allows me to quickly jot off, test, and save code to the cloud while remaining easy on the eyes. Highly recommended!"
