Both methods use Citrix Workspace, but the web method can have a few more issues due to it needing to use some browser add-ons to make things work.  Those add-ons might need to be reactivated in the browser each time the Citrix Workspace app updates or if the browser updates.  That is the primary reason we recommend using the full application that is installed onto the operating system.
