Tried. Very very shortly. Not usable.

Recently, you asked a question about JetBrains IDEs and anything web-based is still too far to be comparable.

If you are not fiddling just a short script, for which you can anyway go with normal local text editor, syncing repos is not going to kill your productivity as much as using suboptimal IDE.

However, for dev, I use two desktop computers, both Core i7. One with 16GB RAM (docker containers, services) and second 32GB RAM (my normal working computer). So, I have never needed to consider the power. This setup is generally okay for my needs.
