what are web applications?
Bringing the web to life  
Web-based applications are computer programs that execute in a web browser environment. An example of such an application would be an online store accessed via Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer.

Perhaps you are already familiar with Amazon.com, which has developed a proprietary "Web Store" application to sell books and compact discs online.

Built on the foundations of the World Wide Web, such applications can be run anywhere in the world at any time and are completely cross platform. In fact, without web applications to breathe life and provide user interaction, a web page is only boring, static electronic text.

Here at eXtropia, we have developed an extensive suite of web applications to do all sorts of useful things that most websites require if they hope to draw customers in and have them return.
