Oh No! Not Another Photo Editor!

We all like something for free don’t we? Here’s a photo editor with a difference in that it runs inside Firefox or Chrome browsers as well as having versions that run on Android and iOS.

I have been running it on both a Linux laptop (64bit) and a Windows 7 64bit machine and so far, it functions flawlessly.
