Yes, all management functions can be done using the vSphere Web Client, to manage VMware vSphere 5.5

BUT, if you need to connect directly to a host, you will need to use the vSphere Client.

The Web Client only connects to vCenter Server.

The vSphere Client can connects to both vCenter Server and directly to the ESXi host.

Yes, many edit version 10 features in VMs, VDP, Big Data plugins.

Web Client will be the main interface for management in the future, no more development is being done on VI Client.
