I keep telling it every day, but somehow it seems most enterprise applications are moving to web only interfaces and with it the trend is comming to the consumer applications as well.

Like it or not, web technologies make up the only universal UI toolkit. In addition to having a automatic update system and platform independence. In addition to being the faster way of implementing most UIs.
If you don't need a lot of processing power, WEB is the best way to proceed.
As for enterprises, it helps with data loss prevention.
