Ask HN: When and why do you choose to use a desktop client vs. a web client?

For apps that have rich clients for both web and desktop (e.g. Slack, Teams, Zoom, Discord, Notion, Outlook, Spotify, etc.), when and why do you choose to use one vs. the other? For example, do you prefer desktop clients because of feature superiority and/or better OS integration? Do you generally prefer web clients when you're performing an ad-hoc task and/or need on-to-go/quick access to something?

I'm curious to learn more about folks workflows and how they incorporate web vs. desktop clients into it effectively. For folks that are using web clients, I'm also really interested to how how many of you are installing PWAs when available.
