MUTE (Multi-User Text Editor) is a web-based text editing tool that allows to edit documents collaboratively in real-time. It implements our recent work on collaborative editing algorithms and more specifically the LogootSplit+ approach  [22] . Compared to existing web-based collaborative text editing tool this editor does not require a powerful central server since the server is not performing any computation and acts as a simple broadcast server. Our editor offers support for working offline while still being able to reconnect at a later time. This prototype is distributed under the term of GNU GPLv3 licence and is freely available at . A demo server is hosted at .
