      "I like the idea of color coding to label certain actions, and I also like the overall color theme (dark). The small size is nice, since all it is, is an editor, and therefore I can't imagine why it'd be big in the first place."

Atom is fully customizable, giving you the option to change the interface, add scripts and other add-ons. Worth the download, and since it is free it is definitely worth trying."

It has native Nodejs support but the actual IDE for cloud 9 isn't that great when compared to desktop options that are not cloud based. There is no plugin functionality in Cloud9 which makes it difficult to extend the platform and add things like snippets and specific intellisense for different versions of JavaScript."
