  3. 3. ONLINE APPLICATIONS OVERVIEW  Benefits of web applications  A compatible web browser is all that is needed;  Browser applications typically require little or no disk space on the client computer;  They require no upgrade procedure since all new features are implemented on the server and automatically delivered to the users;  They also provide cross-platform compatibility in most cases (i.e., Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.)  Drawbacks of web applications  In practice, web interfaces, compared to normal applications installed in PC, typically force significant sacrifice to user experience and basic usability;  Web applications absolutely require compatible web browsers;  When connection to the internet is interrupted, the application is no longer usable.  Privacy risks - the company who runs the application can theoretically track anything the users do.
