What is Web Application (Web Apps) and its Benefits

A Web application (Web app) is an application program that is stored on a remote server and delivered over the Internet through a browser interface. Web services are Web apps by definition and many, although not all, websites contain Web apps. According to Web.AppStorm editor Jarel Remick, any website component that performs some function for the user qualifies as a Web app.

Web applications can be designed for a wide variety of uses and can be used by anyone; from an organization to an individual for numerous reasons. Commonly used Web applications can include webmail, online calculators, or e-commerce shops. Some Web apps can be only accessed by a specific browser; however, most are available no matter the browser.

How Web applications work

Web applications do not need to be downloaded since they are accessed through a network. Users can access a Web application through a web browser such as

What is application? – Definition from WhatIs.com

An application, also referred to as an application program or application software, is a computer software package that performs a specific function directly for an end user or, in some cases, for another application. An application can be self-contained or a group of programs. The program is a set of operations that runs the application for the user.

Examples of applications include word processors, database programs, web browsers, development tools, image editors and communication platforms. Applications use the computer’s operating system (OS) and other supporting programs, typically system software, to function. An application requests services from and communicates with other technologies via an application programming interface (API).

Applications vs. system software

Unlike application software, system software programs operate in the background and do not directly interface with the computer user. System software manages the operation of a computer or instance and typically includes the OS, hypervisor and drivers. These are

  • The Supreme Court of Appeal has dismissed a “peculiar” appeal by the Helen Suzman Foundation over the renewal of former IPID head Robert McBride’s contract.   
  • The court found the HSF’s contention, that it was up to the incumbent to decide whether his contract was extended or terminated, to be “absurd”.   
  • McBride has moved on to head the Foreign Branch of the State Security Agency.   

“This is a peculiar appeal,” wrote judges of the Supreme Court of Appeal in dismissing an application by the Helen Suzman Foundation (HSF) over former IPID head Robert McBride’s contract.   

The judges also found the application by the foundation regarding the reinstatement of McBride to be “illogical”.  

The judgment was handed down on Wednesday, long after McBride had moved on from his job as head of the Independent Police Investigative Directorate, and the to-and-fro over who can decide to extend

Another blow for Barnabas Xulu as judge dismisses recusal application

  • The Western Cape High Court dismissed an application brought by lawyer Barnabas Xulu.
  • Xulu has been accused of using “Stalingrad tactics”.
  • In January 2020, the court ruled that Xulu’s firm should pay back R20 million in legal fees.

Attorney Barnabas Xulu has suffered another blow in what has been described as a “Stalingrad strategy” to hold onto the R20 million in legal fees his firm unlawfully received from the government.

On Tuesday, Xulu lost his bid to have a Western Cape High Court judge recuse himself.

The court also dismissed his application for leave to appeal against a November 2020 ruling, which confirmed another judge’s order to freeze his assets.

Xulu has been challenging the court’s January 2020 ruling that his firm’s service level agreement and the R20 million legal fees settlement agreement with the Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries were unlawful.
