EtherPad: Work Together In Real Time

EtherPad streamlines the wordsmithing process like never before. Previously, reaching agreement meant sending multiple copies of documents by email. With EtherPad, text can quickly be finalized by having all the stakeholders come to the same pad, make their edits, and collectively sign off on the resulting document.For example, EtherPad was used to edit the final draft of this very web page.

EtherPad is useful whenever multiple people with computers need to work together in real time.This all kind of work can be finished by this website.

  • Better Meetings
  • Teleconferencing
  • Drafting and Editing Prose
  • Engineering Phone Interviews

Other custom in-browser text editors tend to be either slow or quirky, owing to the difficulty of using browsers' built-in text editing mechanisms while extending them in new ways. EtherPad uses a novel editing engine, developed and refined at AppJet over many months, that provides a solid user experience without compromising on responsiveness."
