vscode.dev : Bringing VS Code to the browser

Although I’m still using Visual Studio (or Rider depending on the mood) for my day to day C# development(and F# occasionally), I use Visual Studio Code for all other languages and web development.

With vscode.dev, your favorite code editor becomes available everywhere without the need to leave the browser and install anything.

Thanks to the File System Access API support in modern browser, vscode.dev can access the local file system. This enables scenario’s like local file viewing end editing.

Integration with Github and Azure DevOps is also available allowing you to sync your changes with repositories on both platforms.

However don’t expect that vscode.dev is already on par with the desktop version in terms of functionality. For example, there's no internal debugging or terminal with vscode.dev.
