The problem I have with web based apps is the security, or rather, the lack of it. I can't think of any company that would trust its financial or inventory data to a web app. And as Demigrog points out, why should I pay a subscription fee for 20+years to use a program like Quicken? If you are thinking that the response is that I would get the latest bells and whistles every few months, I'll counter that I have been using the Quicken version that I bought 10 years ago and it works just fine for me. I have no need for the latest doodads.
