We have BIG news. Ephox has been reborn under a new name. We are now Tiny!
Why? Well, TinyMCE has built a massive following with developers over the years. According to Wappalyzer, TinyMCE has a 64% market share and it is downloaded more than 100,000 times a month. Our team is very fortunate to include the founders of the open source project, Joakim Lindkvist and Johan “Spocke” Sörlin, and many more of the active contributors to the project work at our company.
To make it easier for you to understand who we are and what we are working on, we have decided to put all of our efforts behind the Tiny brand. Renaming our company to Tiny Technologies Inc. demonstrates the efforts we are making to have TinyMCE the best choice for online rich text editing. In fact, TinyMCE version 5 is right around the corner.
We like our new name and we hope you do too. Not only is it beautifully simple, it has a high potential for “tiny” puns 😉
Our new name will also have a new home on the web. Cloud computing is undoubtedly the future of web technology and the new top-level domain of “.cloud” allows us to make a statement about the future of content creation. Our primary domain name will be “tiny.cloud“.
If you are an existing customer or vendor of Ephox Corporation you do not need to change anything. We are registered to do business as both Ephox Corporation and as Tiny Technologies Inc. Either name works and continues to be valid.
It also is worth noting that we continue to support and release updates to our mobile-first online rich text editor, Textbox.io. By the end of 2019, we do see both TinyMCE and Textbox.io coming together but for now, they are independent projects.
A company is a continuous project, and we are busily creating the future of Tiny. We have a lot more exciting news to come, and we hope that you, the Tiny Community, continue to join us.
