“The intuitive editing interfaces that would make authoring a natural part of daily life … are still maturing.” – Tim Berners-Lee in “Spinning the Semantic Web”

Today, developers compose most of the Web in stand-alone web editing applications or in simple text editors. Modern browsers render, but they don’t allow users to edit what they see. There is no fundamental reason for this gulf between editing and viewing. After all, the Web is about interaction, not dumb page flipping, so you should be able to hit “edit” in your favorite browser and manipulate content as easily as you view it, WYSIWYG-style. Mozile, which stands for Mozilla Inline Editor, is a new Mozilla plug-in for in-browser editing. This article provides an overview of Mozile and what in-browser editing means today.
