Really depends how you define web doesn't it? If by web you're
referring specifically to HTTP, which the majority of those custom
clients are using to transmit data, then yes, the web is the present
of computing.

Even if you define it more generally as programming with some kind of
network interaction involved, it's still the present of computing.

In fact the only definitions of web that it fails this test is the
very narrow definition which refers only to HTML being loaded into a
browser. (And though facebook has shown that this approach on mobile
is still not really viable yet, it is still being worked on). Look at
firefoxOS. No consensus has really emerged yet on this, though it
seems to be the direction many are headed.
