New postman web offering

So today I was setting up a new dev box and went to download postman, and was provided both a web and app option.
Great! A web option! Wait… it wasn’t that long ago I was using postman as a web plugin that was decommissioned in leu of a desktop app, so I was no longer able to use it.
What happened? Why the flip flop? Was the plugin that difficult to support?
