One of the main advantages of web applications is their ease of deployment. The same can't be said about desktop applications. However, desktop applications work without a network connection. While this used to be a deal breaker for web applications, recent developments in HTML 5 and browser plugins such as Flash and Silverlight allow developers to create web applications that work both online and offline.

Also, other factors for offline applications, such as client-side data storage, will be examined in detail.
