With the dawn of the web the software industry finally achieved a huge milestone: zero-deployment applications that can be run anywhere the user has a computer.

With the rise of free or low cost advertising, testing, and metrics frameworks, the world of software expanded enormously as software companies gained the ability to target niche customer bases and monetize their applications more effectively.
