Instant messaging and
social applications

Providing for the speed of the users, customizable WYSIWYG rich text editors that work.

Whether you are working on an instant messaging software or social media application, your WYSIWYG rich text editor needs to "just work" and work fast without annoying any users. Some users like the WYSIWYG interface and use shortcuts. Some prefer to write first, format later or format text on the go. And some like Markdown. Good news is CKEditor can cover all of the different writing preferences and habits!
