Thanks for answering my question on web IDE’s and giving ICEcoder and ShiftEdit some love.
To me, GitHub is a fantastic code version control system and could be just one piece of an IDE puzzle. A lot of good IDE’s (web or desktop) now encompass working with Github, plus collab coding, database management and more. (Pushing & pulling to Github is part of ICEcoder, also part of Cloud9 etc).
Think you hit the nail on the head by saying teams likely already have their own systems and freelancers likely don’t collaborate so are maybe sticking with what they use right now. I also think people are quite attached to their code editors and maybe a little wary of new fangled things.
Maybe time will tell if it shifts online :)
GitHub is not, in any context, an IDE. GitHub is a service that provides cloud hosting for the Git source code management system. For IDE, think Visual Studio, Dreamweaver, Eclipse, etc. They’re text editors with features and tools that make software development easier.
Now that you know what an IDE is, go back and re-read the original question about web-based IDEs.
