  1. The availability of the "Open", "Save", and "Save as" functionalities depends on the capabilities of the user's web browser. The ability to read and save changes directly to the files stored on the user's device is enabled via the new File System Access API, also known as Native File System API or Writeable Files API. As of August 2021, this API is only supported in desktop Chromium-based browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. In all other browsers, Simple Text Editor falls back to using the traditional file uploading and downloading capabilities of the browser to open and save files.
  2. The "Autocapitalize", "Spellcheck", and "Autocorrect" features are experimental and may have limited support.
