    Bump.

    This was recently relaunched as www.overleaf.com. I haven't used it yet, but it looks really, really cool. I'll definitely being giving it a go for my next project.

    I've used it a few times. If you're doing stuff that is image intensive you can get server timeouts which are a little annoying. Editing a package to suit your own needs isn't really possible. Biggest gripe for me is the uploading your own files/images to the server can be a bit cumbersome.

    Still, I like it and am using it more and more frequently

    Just checked it out there for the first time. I really like it.

    The main problem for me is that it is all online. I have terrible broadband and just can't rely on it.

    Pity it isn't something I can download.

    It's handy for introducing people to LaTeX without spending an hour getting it going on windows.
