Which is better will depend, I think, on what your needs are, not how many people you are serving.

I would not say that it is "not good" but I would keep in mind that it is one point of view that this company promotes because it fits in with the services they offer and and their business model.  I would also say that I disagree with the premise of the article, which doesn't make it wrong because different people (or organizations) can have different points of view and still be valid.

It's what the application does, what you need to do in the interface, what type of connections are available and what type of data the application works with that is important, not the number of users.

There is not straight answer to that question.

And as far as I am concerned, the article you point to is both as clear as can be and up to the point.

web based you may have inconsistent user experiences depending upon the browser and browser settings. App based you control the user experience. You can have both if you so chose.   There is no true best solution as there are a plethora of different scenarios which will put one over the top of the other.
