Why online?

Sorry for a stupid questions, but is the FREE version online/an app and the SHOP and PRO programs you download?

Why is it online these days?

SketchUp Free and SketchUp Shop are web-based applications. SketchUp Pro is a desktop version in which you download the installer and run it to install the software. There are a number of reasons for the web-based versions. Because they run in an internet browser they are operating system-agnostic. That means that people using Chrome OSs or Linux machines can use them. There are other reasons, too, but I won’t go into all of them.
