I've now got an invite and had a quick look. It's an interesting approach,
quite different to what we're doing with the new frontends for IPython 0.11.
They are actually emulating a terminal in the browser, to the point that you
can run nano inside it (I'm impressed!). The upside of that is that you get
essentially kosher terminal IPython. The downside is that there is, as Harry
mentioned, a bit of lag. It seems to be sending every keystroke to the
server before displaying it, so there's a noticeable gap between pressing a
key and seeing it appear. I assume they're planning to improve that before
it goes public.
