Browser code editor awesomeness

ICEcoder is completely free and always will be. However, if you find it's useful to you and want to donate, that's much appreciated:
So, what's ICEcoder?
ICEcoder is a open-source browser code editor which provides a modern approach to building websites by allowing you to code directly within the web browser, online or offline. This, in turn, means you only need one program (your browser), plus can test on actual web servers and after development, maintain the website easily, all of which make for speedy and smart development. Because it can be web based you also can do this from any internet enabled computer with a modern browser and because it's open-source, customise it to your liking, integrating with online services. If you'd like to use it as a desktop code editor, no problems, you only need PHP 5.0+ (though 5.3+ is recommeded), so you can use on Linux and on PC via MAMP or XAMPP and Mac via WAMP (or a PHP installation).
ICEcoder was created because web devs (like myself) always complained their code editor didn't do exactly what they like. They're often bloated with features, slow and awkward. Conversely, ICEcoder is lightweight (under 1mb including all plugins) and boots in seconds (often 1-2s). Oh, and it's also free (and always will be!). Enjoy!
ICEcoder has a simple manual which contains a list of over 60 API calls so you can make your own mods & plugins:layout

Code editor features
While it looks simplistic on the surface, ICEcoder packs a whole load of features and plugins to make coding slick & efficient.
Some of the best include:
Use it online from wherever you are, but it runs under localhost too as a desktop solution.
An indicator shows if you have a broken tag structures and highlights where errors occured.
16 highlighting themes come as standard but you can easily make your own with a CSS file.
Find and replace can be applied to the current or all open documents, plus filenames & files.
ICEcoder can be setup wherever you wish and is login secured to help keep your files safe.
Plenty of coding assist is available such as Emmet, close tag completion and tag wrappers.
A nesting display shows your cursor position, hover over them to highlight, click to select.
MySQL database management is easy with the Adminer plugin. It's like phpMyAdmin, but better.
What's new in v 2.4
Updates: Python language support, pull remote content from URLs, devMode setting, refocus shortcut, copy & paste multiple items plus bug fixes
