But still Chrome has a purpose to push away people
from desktop programs to WebApps, because of all the advertisement,
marketing and tracking possibilities WebApps give to the companies,
WebApps also means data is not stored locally, but remotely.
Not to mention Chrome sends your history to Google
servers when you log in into Google Account(Gmail, Youtube).
I know some people can write open-source WebApps
and host them on their private servers or at least
paid VPSes, but how many? Not to mention these
WebApps will probably not cover every use-case
and they are going to use some company WebApp
