VS Code Browser is the default editor that workspaces open in when using Gitpod. You can even configure your VS Code extension preferences by updating your .gitpod.yml.
VS Code Browser in Gitpod is based on a fork of VS Code called OpenVSCode Server . VS Code in the browser in Gitpod is updated frequently, to use the latest nightly build of Gitpod you can switch to the “insiders” version of VS Code from your Gitpod preferences page.
By default, all your extensions and other preferences are synced between all of your workspaces on Gitpod. You can read more about over at Settings Sync.
