Actually I do, but I may be talking from a minority position here.
However, It's not about accessibility, it's that webapps have zero
installation overhead and a non-zero barrier between web data and your
personal data; for installed applications, it is the other way round.

That's one of the things I have been disliking about how the W3C has
What's also missing is UI design guidelines such as those that have been
established for Mac, Windows, and Linux. Most webapps have a horrid user
experience even for me, who is neither blind nor colorblind nor
mouse-precision-impaired, i.e. usability is bad even for mainstream users.
