Most of my leisure time on the computer consists of visiting fairly popular websites, facebook, youtube, amazon, etc. All of which have a dedicated Windows app.
My PC is not a touch screen. So my question is whether or not it is better (in terms of functionality) to utilize these apps or just to use a web browser on my desktop.
I like the idea of using apps but I feel it may eat up a lot of processing power, memory, and even networking.
I'm sure this is one of those "it depends" kind of question so just give me your opinion or experience. Perhaps the fun or ease of the apps overrides any spec hogging tendencies, or maybe these apps are only beneficial with a touch screen device.
Just let me know what you guys think!
