I'm interested in trying out gdocsopen http://www.gdocsopen.com/ as I want to look at the live editing capabilities. (I know it's not well known software and not made by Google, and I haven't seen it used before, it just came up in a Google search, maybe seen https://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/9617/how-to-open-local-documents-directly-in-google-docs or I was looking up about [collaborative] live text editing with syncing, and having google docs open local files)

I don't know who makes the gdocsopen software but anyhow.

I installed it and opened the setup file and this comes up

enter image description here

I don't like the idea of logging into my Google account from within a window of some software application. I'm not sure it's safe to do that.

If I click on "open authorization dialog in new window"

Then this window comes up

enter image description here

Process Explorer shows it's a GDocsOpen.exe window. So it's not like it popped up Chrome. I don't like the idea of entering my email and password into that window.

I'm wondering if there's a safe way to do it.

It looks like it could be interesting good software, so i'd like to try it. A video they have shows it syncing between notepad2 and google docs, at least one way, such that a change in google docs shows in notepad2, and maybe the other way too.
