That's a very fair point.

An "ubiquitous" IDE should also work when disconnected.

Luckily, Web applications can be designed to work offline.

In effect, modern AJAX based web apps already execute most of their code on 
the client side, going back to the server only when absolutely necessary and 
there are now technologies like Google Gear to efficiently store/access 
information locally so further reducing dependency on remote services.
