First of all, I need to specify that a web app is a web application i.e., an app that runs on a web browser.it consists of creating a sort of direct link between you’re your device’s desktop and a URL. That means you should be able to open in any browser your desired website.

Different kinds of websites have different purposes depending on each one’s needs. Some websites are specially developed to market and sell their products. Some websites are created to provide practical information and some merely for entertainment.
The purpose of informative websites is to provide practical and useful information to the user so that the user learns something new and that he understands what he needed to know from the site.
The purpose of entertaining websites is to showcase entertainment to users.

Sometimes the URL takes time to load at that time the website will be in trouble.

DEFINITION OF WEB APP
A Web Application is a computer program which uses web browsers to perform the similar task which users generally do in android/IOS application. For example, you can use WhatsApp in google chrome and chat via your laptop as well.
Thousands of businessmen both big ones and small ones use the internet which is cost-effective as communication channels. The internet helps them make fast and secure transactions and helps them exchange information at a very quick speed.
Web Application uses a combination of server-side scripts (PHP and ASP) which help to handle the storage and retrieve the information, and client-side scripts (JAVA SCRIPTS and HTML) to present information to the users. This helps the users to have an interaction with the company using online forms content management systems, shopping carts and a lot more. The application also helps the company employees to create documents, share information, to collaborate on projects and to work on common documents anywhere and everywhere.
HOW A WEB APP WORKS
This is how a web app flow works. First, the user starts a request to the web server over the internet either through the applications user interface or a web browser. Then the webserver forwards this to the correct application server. Then the web application starts performing the requested task such as processing the data or querying the database then it generates the result of the data that was requested. Then the web application server forwards the result to the webserver with the requested processed data and the information. After which the web server replies to the client with their requested information that appears on the user’s display. Now you will have an understanding of how the web app works.
EXAMPLE OF A WEB APP
Web Applications generally include word processors, shopping carts, spreadsheets, online forms, file conversion, file scanning, photo, and video editing and email programs like Yahoo, Gmail, and AOL. And the most used and popular applications are Microsoft 365 and Google Apps.
The Google apps work for Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slide, Gmail, online storage and many more.
BENEFITS OF WEB APPS
Now let us talk about the benefits of web apps. All the users access the same version eliminating any compatibility issues. The apps are not installed on a hard device which helps in eliminating space limitation issues. The apps reduce the cost for the company and the end-users because there are less support and maintenance required by the company and lesser requirements for the end-users device. The Web Applications run on multiple platforms regardless of the operating system or device as long as it has a compatible browser.
I can finally conclude that because of the increased usage of the internet among companies and individuals it has influenced how the business is run. This has to lead to the widespread usage of Web Application as the company’s shift from the traditional models to grid models and cloud-based models. The web apps give the businesses the capacity to streamline their operations, reduce costs and to increase their efficiency. Almost nothing in today’s world works without a Web App.
