Web applications are in best of the cases unsecure.
Web applications offer low perfomance and limited capabilities compared to desktop apps.
People like it or not Web applications are browser dependant and this is will be forever.
Web applications consumes higher resources than the functional equivalente desktop app just because
you need to run the browser even for a Hello World page.

Web applications put at the same level to users that own a dual core machine and the other who use a Core I7 PC or a Mac. This means that web applications can't take adventage of the full hardware capabilites of the hosting computer.
Web applications demand that all your data sensitive or not be stored on remote server and be kept out of your sight or control.
Web pages are just for certain kind of applications. Not a panacea...
