An application that is implemented inside a WebBrowser

Other definition that was here before:
The module of the overall application that handles a user session, application flow, Web Page requests, navigation. This is as opposed to the StoredProcedures

There are some applicaltions that run completely locally but are designed like WebApplication
's. An example is Yandex Personal Search [http://desktop.yandex.ru/how.xml
] - an utility for local search of files, that runs residentally as a local HTTP server and is accessed by an HTTP link - so it looks like a popular Russian web search engine. Less precise example is DiffDaff?
] - a local file compare tool that produces output in an HTML page.
I thought a WebApplication
and using HTML/CSS for its UI, not requiring a server to be installed locally.. A web app should not require be able to perform its function with no internet connection, only requiring net access for data or code updates.
