Most popular Windows and Mac apps in South Africa

Meta Platforms' WhatsApp Messenger for Desktop is the most popular free app among Windows and Mac users in South Africa.

On the other hand, the most popular paid app for Windows is HEVC Video Extensions, while Mac users downloaded the paid OneShootRean app more than any other app on the App Store.
 
I'm probably missing something, but why would someone install a free app, like IM apps, etc, that can just be run in a browser? Especially in Windows, you don't wanna be installing unnecessary crap.

The browser version uses 3 times the amount of RAM......

Why would I want to use a browser when I can install it natively?

Besides apps from the Appstores are completely self contained.
