I think, this is the best online IDE nowadays. I'm using it for months. Fast, cool, easy to use. I have a license for PhpStorm (but I'm using it for Nodejs/Angularjs now), but I almost never use my desktop IDE because Codio is the first for which can really replace it. I simply don't need anything else. And for $8 you can work on unlimited private projects! That's cool. I also loved the support and the way they communicated, when there was a problem with the service. Their communication was honest and quick.
