While ConverseJS is available as a web app, that does not seem relevant to
the package you've linked. That package does not use the actual
hosted-on-the-internet web app. It deploys a local instance of the
conversejs codebase and connects to that with a local browser. In effect,
this is no different from apps like Visual Studio Code, Slack, Discord, etc
which package a browser (electron) and a backend (usually javascript) that
runs locally.
