In computing, a web application or web app is a client–server software application in which the client (or user interface) runs in a web browser.
Common web applications include webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis, instant messaging services and many other functions.
The general distinction between an interactive web site of any kind and a "web application" is unclear. Web sites most likely to be referred to as "web applications" are those which have similar functionality to a desktop software application, or to a mobile app. HTML5 introduced explicit language support for making applications that are loaded as web pages, but can store data locally and continue to function while offline.
