    Distraction-free writing software are basically like notepad but in full screen without (or with minimal) menus, buttons, or anything so that one can treat their screen as a sheet of paper of sorts and work in a distraction-free zone. It's especially nice at nighttime with a black screen to type on. There are many software types available but I've started to notice web-based equivalents emerging like this one.

    Personally, I am reluctant to use a web-based equivelent because I can never be 100% sure about privacy. No matter how convincing their privacy policy may sound, I'm still inputting text on their site and it autosaves. Not a problem for lists or whatnot but for creative works.. :\

    I guess the same could be said of actual software too, if the internet is connected any saved text could still reach the software creator's servers. What do you all think?

    It is the same reason I do not use the word processing software provided by Google. I prefer to write using the traditional offline method then later on when I have checked and corrected the errors, then I can paste into the online editor. I just like it that way.
