The web is not just websites. There are plenty of ways to communicate on
the web without using HTML. Desktop applications can be used to help
people work together just as well as (and in some cases more effectively
and efficiently than) web apps. Don't dismiss the desktop app as "the
old way". After all, its a desktop app (web browser) that makes all web
apps even possible. Also, don't forget that desktop apps can be written
entirely with PHP!
