The tools available in Galaxy are mostly sufficient indeed, also a tool I
added myself to do a substitute based on regular expressions helps in this.
But there are some moments that I just miss an edit function which could
save me time as I don't have to go through different tools (or
down/uploading) to get the end result. As I already mentioned, I only like
to see this for small datasets (sizes uptil the maximum displayed in the
"display data" screen) as I know that bigger files are just too hard to
handle in the browser.
PS. The blast result that I mentioned would also be a small file as I'm not
going to manually walkthrough 500mb of blast results, I would ofcourse use a
filter for that :)

The main issue with this is that is your blast output is 500Mb (which is
very common) the browser will have a hard time dealing with it even if there
is an editor. Isn't filter tool sufficient to help with irregularities?

most cases are indeed solved with the tools already available, removing a
line from the top was a bad example :) . However if you have a blast result
that you don't want to filter on any particular score, but you want to judge
by the alignment and the combination of the different scorings after which
you want to filter out several lines which don't have any obvious
regularity, then a text editor is the simplest solution.
I understand that a texteditor is maybe not the best way for getting a
clear history, however the other alternative is to get it out of galaxy and
do it on your desktop and place it back in. If there is a tool in galaxy it
will all stay in galaxy and just with any other tool, when the file is saved
a new file is generated and the original remains. If you then want to see
the differences between the files you could do a diff.
