InContext Editing is an online service that designers may use to allow content editors and publishers to update website content directly through their browsers — without compromising design integrity. Your team members won’t need to learn HTML, nor even install extra software. And for now, it is free.

How much does InContext Editing cost?
Adobe InContext Editing is currently available as a free preview. It will remain free through the end of 2010. In early 2011, Adobe plans to offer the service as a subscription of $10-20USD per month, which will also include Adobe BrowserLab (also becoming a paid release in early 2011).
When will InContext Editing be available for subscription?
The Adobe InContext Editing service is available now as a free preview for users in the United States only. This free preview program gives the community an opportunity to provide feedback, help identify bugs, and suggest feature additions before launch of the paid service.
What is the difference between InContext Editing and Adobe Contribute?
Adobe Contribute is a companion software application to Dreamweaver and, like InContext Editing, it also enables site administrators to restrict the types of modifications that content managers can make. However, Contribute is more robust; it provides content approval mechanisms, audit trails, versioning, scheduled publishing, rich media support (multimedia such as SWF or FLV files), and advanced user permissions.
