Quick edit is a very nice feature that makes editing documents easy and snappy. Its mainly for the blog’s admin. While these feature is essential to the admin, it serves no use to the viewer who just has to read the article on the blog. Quick edit buttons appear on widgets, blog posts etc to make editing easy so you don’t have to search for the widgets to edit them.
