Last week, I asked if now was the right time for web-based IDEs, given recent innovations in the IDE space, not least  the CodeRun IDE. DZone readers have cast their votes and it seems like a substantial amount of you (43%) believe that IDEs belong nowhere but on your desktop. A similar amount of people (42%), think that there is a chance the IDEs can work out on the browser platform. The lowest percentage are convinced that browser based IDEs are the way to go. 

So, it looks like right now isn't the time for changing the IDE paradigm. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few months with the rise of tablet devices, in particular the iPad. 

Thanks to everyone who voted in this poll.
