let's take a theoretical app that has both an installable version and a web version. I use it via my web browser or I can install the app.
What are the safety considerations for the host operating system given each option? is one safer than the other, or does the browser protect you more?
I guess I have always been under the impression that running the web app of a service is safer than installing it as if there was malicious code it is limited to the browser. But I wanted to know how realistic this is?
