Quote: Another advantage of web apps is that they are automatically platform independent

Not true. It may be true for pure HTML, but web apps are much more than just HTML. I've had a case wich the site simply went crazy on a Mac, but worked without any flaws on a win32 environment.

Aside from that, we have the ever lasting browser issue. Making a good web app that is 100% cross-browser is a royal pain in the a** (sorry, but it is) and that's because a good web app must have a good interface, and well, from here the other replies (including mine below) speaks for themselves :)
