I managed to add this feature to my freeware Listary while waiting for It's All Text for Chrome. It's not a Chrome extension strictly, but it does do the trick perfectly:
1. Support all text boxes, not only textareas! It even supports the rich text editor in Gmail.
2. Support all kinds of text editors.
It's very easy to use although it doesn't have the magic blue button. Press Win + A whenever you need to input some text, and then your favorite text editor will open. Your text will be "exported" to Chrome automatically after saving.
I'm using gVim to edit this post now, hope you also enjoy it! Please don't forget to help spread the word if you find it useful

That's freakin' awesome.
I tried Edit With Emacs (https://chrome.google.com/extensions...ggjbhkghgicgoh)
I tried TextAid (https://chrome.google.com/extensions...pphojggcdigllp)
But both of those required you to run a server..
Channing, I can honestly tell you I will not bother waiting for It's All Text 4 Chrome.. you have provided the perfect solution for any browser.
Just like StrokeIt obviated FireGestures, you have obviated It's All Text.
Maybe if you're using Windows, but since it's a Windows program and not a Chrome extension, I cannot use it on Ubuntu Linux. I'll wait for a plugin.
When trying to edit HTML with some cyrillic symbols I only receive ??? insted of them in my favourite Notepad++
Well I downloaded it and installed it but it does nothing....
There's also a free mini-version of the app called Text Editor Anywhere by the same developer. I've been using it on Windows Seven for a few weeks. Works nicely. I use a nice small editor specifically designed for browser forum text called BBCeditor. It integrates nicely with TEA.

I stopped using any software textual editors at the moment I started using Google docs. As for me it is great because you don't have to download or install anything so that you can open up any document on any computer. The only program I continue on using is MP4 Player software and only because it's free.
Cheers, i am always using chrome as my default explorer and Google docs as my main textual editors, it seems better than that of micrsoft office software.
