I tend not to use IDEs in the browser because I'm pretty terminal-reliant. Ideas for how to use?

From the post:

Since VS Code for the Web is running completely within the browser, some experiences will naturally be more constrained, when compared to what you can do in the desktop app. For example, the terminal and debugger are not available, which makes sense since you can't compile, run, and debug a Rust or Go application within the browser sandbox (although emerging technologies like Pyodide and web containers may someday change this).

If you need the terminal, you may want to look at Gitpod or GitHub Codespaces.
