Frequently we need a simple text editor without too many bells and whistles to take quick notes. I use notepad.cc most of the time. Today I found another similar editor which works as an extension to Google Chrome – Writebox. The objective remains the same but it has more customization options.
- Ability to sync to Dropbox or Google Drive.
- Distraction free writing environment.
- Some useful keyboard shortcuts (still experimental).
- Can open text files from the local machine and download as plain text or html.
- Minimal yet smart look and feel.
- Change colours, fonts or even use fonts of your choice.
- Change pixel width of the writing area.
- And with this tweak, you can always access it from the dash so that you do not have to have a separate text editor installed.
