Web Enabled

Definition - What does Web Enabled mean?

Web enabled refers to a product or service that can be used through, or in conjunction with, the World Wide Web. A Web-enabled product may be accessed through a Web browser or be able to connect to other Web-based applications in order to synchronize data.

This term used to be an attractive buzzword to include in a product description, but now it would be rarer to have technology that is not Web enabled.

Techopedia explains Web Enabled

For a short time during the Internet bubble, Web-enabled and Web-based were being used interchangeably to describe applications that were accessed using a Web browser. The term soon split off, and Web-based was used to refer to applications that don't do their processing on the user’s computer.

Web-enabled, if it is used at all, usually refers to a program that does some (or all) of its processing on the user’s computer before uploading the output to the Web. A content management system, for example, may still use the term Web-enabled to highlight the fact that it can publish content to the Web in HTML format.
