Web technology apps taking over?

It’s interesting to see that my 3 most used desktop apps, during my day to day computer use, are all web technology based:

  • Atom – My code/text editor.
  • Slack – Communication with my team.
  • Chrome – of course

The last time I was working on a desktop app, I used NW.js, which is a platform for building desktop apps using web technologies.

From my perspective, it’s no coincidence. HTML, CSS and JS are great tools for building lots of types of apps. I like this trend.
