I have downloaded so much software in last 24 hours as I was
installing new OS (Parabola), so I have downloaded it from some server
and I run it.

If I download software into Emacs, I run it in Emacs.

Then there is Racket interface, I could download scheme and run it in
Racket interface (but did not do).

Difference is that browser software would be compiled. But I could as
well download byte code for Emacs and run it, it is also kind of
obfuscated in that sense.

I am sure you are mistaken there. I said, there are now applications
(at least I know about them now), that run quite everything on your
computer, through browser. So there is no server dependency.

TiddlyWiki note taking in a browser

That is one good example. You can edit notes and save it, all locally,
it works offline.


Such applications work offline in browser. No need for network.
