Well, if a program downloads some data from the internet, this has nothing to do with the programs which are ran by a web server. They are not web-based applications.
A web-based application is one that runs remotely, on another server, and which can be accessed by a web browser, and not by its own client program.
But this is like the discussion about which sites are Web2.0, and which are not. :-))
Yes, you are right that the site could say which language is better fore some tasks, but that information won't be a true one. It won't be true, because it would probably not say that Java and C# are less productive than Ruby or perl, so the advertising made by big companies like MS, Oracle, IBM, Sun would be more important than a sample source code which is not shown on the page, but hidden in a zip archive.
Anyway, as I told, a single section and specifying the type of program or 2 sections but with the same language on both is OK, but 2 sections and placing some languages incorrectly only on one of them is not ok.

Desktop and web applications are also increasingly hybrid in nature -- combining elements of both on the assumption that desktop processing is more efficient or intuitive for some tasks but an Internet connection can be assumed and used productively for retrieving data from anywhere on the Internet. That is another reason that a desktop/web division may be misleading for languages. Jamal On Sun, 14 Oct 2007, Octavian Rasnita wrote:
