    I always use an IDE or at the very least I develop locally. The main reason is because you may (rarely) end up someplace where you don't have internet or may not want to connect to the internet available or it may just be super slow.

    I use atom.io for most of my coding these days. You can download a lot of packages for linting, etc.

    You don't need an IDE. You can use Notepad, Notepad ++ or Brackets which are all free on Windows. If your web host offers SSH access then you can use any linux editor like nano, vim or emacs and edit live on the server.

    The offline compilers are faster and way more reliable. Also, when you actually build something useful, the online IDE would be of no use. Go for a good IDE which supports the language you're going to work on.

    Yes, you don't need any IDE (you should also use notepad).

    But if you want to speed up your development you need a good IDE

    All modern web browsers come with a JavaScript Engine (A JavaScript Engine is a program or interpreter which executes JavaScript code.) Then we can execute JavaScript code by the browser without using an IDE. But If you are using Webstorm like Javascript IDE, It will ease your work.

    A cloud IDE is not good for long term, Visual Studio Code is the best imo.

    Nevertheless, due to its growing need and recognition, JS has transformed into NodeJS which is sort of like a full-featured encoding language... Then we can execute JavaScript code by the browser without needing an IDE. But If you are using Webstorm like Javascript IDE, It will ease your projects.

    I like using codeanywhere because like the title says you can code any where. Thats what I use when I code and the IDE that comes with it is not bad. You do need internet to use it but you should have access to wifi anywhere nowadays.
