There have been a number of new major desktop applications in recent years, but the pace of innovation has slowed down compared to the years before the rise of web-based applications. Some of the most notable new desktop applications include:

  • Slack: A team collaboration tool that has become increasingly popular in recent years.
  • Figma: A design tool that allows users to collaborate on designs in real time.
    Notion: A note-taking and productivity app that has gained a lot of traction in recent months.
  • OBS Studio: A free and open-source screen recording and live streaming software.
  • Signal: A secure messaging app that has been growing in popularity in recent years.

These are just a few examples of new major desktop applications that have been released in recent years. While the pace of innovation has slowed down compared to the years before the rise of web-based applications, there are still a number of new and innovative desktop applications being developed. The trend is however is moving in the direction of developing new applications based on web platforms.

In addition to new desktop applications, there has also been a trend of existing software publishers moving their applications to the web. This is due to a number of factors, including the increasing popularity of web-based applications, the lower cost of development and maintenance for web applications, and the ability to reach a wider audience with web applications.

Some of the most notable examples of software publishers that have moved their applications to the web include:

  • Microsoft Office: Microsoft has released web versions of its Office suite of productivity applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.
  • Adobe Creative Cloud: Adobe has also released web versions of many of its creative applications, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
  • Autodesk AutoCAD: Autodesk has released a web version of its AutoCAD CAD software.

The trend of software publishers moving their applications to the web is likely to continue in the years to come. However, there will still be a need for desktop applications for some tasks, such as gaming and video editing.
