I’ve just discovered [‘It’s all text!’][iat], a firefox add-on
that makes it easier to edit text on the web.
It’s a pretty simple idea; any textareas (those boxes used for
composing email, writing forum posts, editing wikis, etc) get a little
click the button and it’ll let you edit the same text in a
[proper text editor][st]. When you save the file or close the editor,
it copies all the text back into the web page.
All of this means it’s a lot easier to edit text on the web;
especially useful for emails and, well, blog posts. 😉

Ooh gosh, that’s really good. Now I can use vi to edit posts, just
like I do for other stuff I write. Hurrah!
Good, innit? For all those who yearn to to M-x replace-regex in forum
comments… I should probably get out more.
