Unless I misunderstood, Fabio wasn't claiming that desktop apps are a
failure from a privacy or security perspective, but that users won't
install them, therefore we must focus on browsers and mobile apps. I
gave three counter-examples of popular desktop apps. I wasn't trying
to make any claims about their privacy or security, just their popularity.
