It's a plus, but in my opinion, the web is only good at being the web: strings everywhere, making communication easy, but that's just it.
I don't want to say that web development is easy and/or pointless, because that's one big feature of computers (communication), but to me, web dev. doesn't have much potential compared to compiled and runtime softwares: web applications are too much focused on communication rather than the application itself.
The internet is great, I agree with that, but I sometime think companies should provide more services not via the web, and propose products other than something that just goes through a web page, with video, flash or sound. Computers are not about the transmission of data, they also are about executing programs.
