Apparently there's a popular Firefox add-on called It's All Text that seems to do the same thing GhostText does, but it's been inactive for a year. Actually there a few more alternatives on SO:

We have have a look at It's All Text's issues to see what problems we can expect to run into

Many of the issues are based on how It's all Text works - file related like naming… .
Other are editor specific related like: "Does not work with my strange editor nobody hear ever about it…"

But we could try to grab a part of the user base from It's all Text if it is inactive.

Yeah, definitely people are interested in software like GhostText. Most of the Chrome alternatives are dead too

It's unlikely that they will consider it, GhostText is not a website, it's kinda geeky and it's not "visible." I think they want something more flashy

I think more than doing nothing they cant do:
