A web browser that runs seamlessly in the Atom editor
This is a web browser tightly integrated into the Atom editor. The web pages appear in the normal editor tabs. The pages are fully functional with scripting and linking. A browser toolbar appears at the top of the Atom window to allow simple webpage navigation.
The browser is quite useful for testing a web page inside the same programming editor being used for development. Splitting panes allow code to be seen next to the web page.
The browser has a simple API for other Atom packages to use. @kgrossjo on the Atom discussion board suggested a package that allows clicking on a word in source code and showing the web page documention for the word.
Finally a working tabbed browser that's using webviews. The easiest way to get going is to toggle the UI in Packages -> Browser, or make atom.workspace.open('http://google.com/'); calls after launching.
