  • Firefox family (Iceweasel, Conkeror, etc)
    • Firefox add-on It's All Text! works with Emacsclient to allow the user to edit text in Emacs and send the results to the browser textarea with [C-x #] (or M-x edit-server-done).
  • Webkit family (Safari, Chrome)
    • Chrome extension Edit with Emacs uses its own Edit Server rather than Emacsclient because Chrome's security policy does not allow extensions to spawn new processes. The extension allows the user to edit text in Emacs and send the results to the browser textarea with [C-x #] (or M-x edit-server-done).
