Calculator, word, excel are few examples of Desktop Application
Online Trading Account, Online Banking, Yahoo are few examples of web application.

Desktop applications need Application’s exe so that I can be installed on Local Machine
Web application need Browsers to be installed on Local Machine, Application Exe will be installed on server machine and to access we need URL

Desktop application is a standalone application (1 tier) Web application is a client server application (3 tier) While testing desktop application we consider functionality testing, database testing, GUI, regression testing etc but whereas while testing web application we not only consider the above but also we consider load/performance testing, links, compatibility testing etc

Client-server applications are loaded at the server.  An .exe is loaded on every client to call this application.  

Web-based applications are also loaded at the server but no .exe is installed at the client machine.  Instead the client calls the application through a web browser.

Client-server Technology:
1. Testing is performed on .exe installed on local computer
2. The number of clients is known
3. Client and server are the entities to be tested
4. Both server and client locations are fixed and known to the user
5. Server to server interaction is prohibited
6. Low multimedia type of data transaction
7. Designed and implemented on intranet environment

Web-based Technology
1. Testing is performed on content streamed from web server using browser (ex: Explorer, Mozilla, etc) installed on local computer
2. Number of clients is difficult to predict (millions of clients)
3. Client, Server and network are the entities to be tested
4. Server location is certain; client locations are not certain
5. Server to server interaction is normal
6. Rich multimedia type of data transaction
7. Designed and implemented on internet environment
