<h1>About Friendpaste</h1>

<h2>Why another pastebin ?</h2>

<ul>
    <li><em><strong>Short answer:</strong></em>
    <p>Because we could do better</p></li>

    <li><em><strong>Long answer :</strong></em>
    <p>Enki Multimedia launched in september the website <a href="http://www.friendsnippets.com">Friendsnippets</a> a website where you can keep your snippets in one place, bookmark them for yourself or friends. And it seem that friendsnippets need a companion. <strong>A fast service where you can copy/paste your code, recipe, anything else and give the link to your friend.</strong></p>
    <p><strong>So we dit it.</strong></p>
    <p>It would have been easy to just take some features from pastebin around and create friendpaste. But we decided that we could do better. In particularly by designing a better interface. We also added some interresting features.</p>

    </li>

</ul>

<h2>Features</h2>
<ul>
    <li>clean an intuitive user interface</li>
    <li>choice of colorscheme for sourcecode</li>
    <li>select your preferred languages</li>
    <li>possibility to edit pastes</li>
    <li>support for a large number of syntaxes</li>
    <li>persistent pastes</li>
    <li>diff between paste</li>
    <li>instant reviews</li>
    <li>...</li>
</ul>
And the best is coming...
