in thread web-based application or desktop application?

Point taken :)

An example of what I mean is gnats, I used to be working, coding, testing, and hence filing bugs. Everything I was doing was text based, and the only way I ever accessed gnats was via the command line interface, it was just much faster for me than having to use the web pages. Both gnats interfaces were equally clunky IMHO, but with the commandline I didn't have to mouse it, and I didn't need a windowing system on the machine (which was the case all to often).

gnats (good or bad you decide) is actually a good example here, its a case where the HTML interface is most used, but not the only way to do it. For the less computer literate it is an easy familiar HTML interface, and for those like me, it is just a few keystrokes to manipulate. That is the way I like applications, with options to do it the way I like :)
