Not an app. A website. A website with a text editor that never loads.

Every time I open a file from Google Drive, the Text Editor first opens the "Welcome to the Text Editor" document, and then starts opening my file. It's pretty time consuming. Wouldn't it be possible to view my file directly? Without that boring interscreen?

Do we have to watch adds just to edit text? How sad.
