Web application development is the process and practice of developing web applications. A web application is an application that is accessed over a network such as the Internet or an intranet.

Common web applications include webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis and many other functions.

The ability to update and maintain web applications without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands of client computers is a key reason for their popularity, as is the inherent support for cross-platform compatibility.
