    Web based apps or desktop based apps? Which one is better for you? Do you use/have web based apps more than desktop based apps for IM? What are your thoughts on this subject?

    For the web based ones you need to trust the provider with all your data. I personally don't ;)

    I personally prefer desktop apps, but have seen many services which work better as a web based application. So I would say it depends.

    Do you think desktop based app developers can't steal your data too if they want?

    It depends if the functionality depends on ongoing data collection on a wide scale, or just on-demand collection.

    You can't use ahrefs as a desktop tool (no point) if you dont have their few petabytes of data on your hard drive, but you could use GSA since the software only contains the logic, and you feed the data.
