The perfect way to collaborate on a text document and keep everyone literally on the same page.
Most collaboration systems merge text at the document level, or apply locking at the document or paragraph level. With EtherPad, character-level changes to a document are merged as multiple people type.
In most cases, real-time collaborators can negotiate who is editing what parts of the text. In all cases, EtherPad ensures consistency between everyone’s screens, regardless of the timing of network operations, using a novel synchronization algorithm.
