Why do you make browser games instead of desktop games?

I was just wondering why people here are choosing to make HTML5 games that are browser based instead of desktop?

Is there less money and more risk with desktop on platforms like Steam, Itch.io and GameJolt?

I like browser for how easy it is to distribute.

Please share you reasons it would be interesting to see what people have to say.

Because it's mindblowing! I can go and play any game without downloading it, it's the perfect platform for disposable games. That's pretty crazy to me. For me nostalgia was a huge factor too. I remeber playing flash games as a kid on newgrounds and making games that can be distributed like that is just awesome. 


Only thing that sucks is performance limitations.

Because I believe is the future of gaming. You can have all platforms unified in one. If I want to export for desktop, electron comes to my rescue. If I need it as a mobile app Cordova is the way to go. In any case accessibility is very high and performance is getting better every day.
