"The open source Eclipse Foundation is known for its namesake
Eclipse IDE and its related ecosystem of projects and plugins, most
of which are desktop based.
"The modern world of Web applications and even Web development
itself is moving online to the cloud, which is why Eclipse is now
starting a new Web-based development effort called Orion.
""Orion is a brand new, browser-based open tool integration
platform which is entirely focused on developing for the Web, in
the Web," Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse
Foundation told InternetNews.com. "This is not Eclipse in a browser
-- it is a completely new codebase with a completely new metaphor
for tool integration and workflow that matches the idioms of the
Web rather than the desktop."
