Pro Semi-Desktop and Webapp versions make it pretty much crossplatform
You can use it on any internet enabled device. Desktop Mac and Windows versions uses your default browser and java to drive a webapp. On linux you'll have to straight up use the website or run a virtual machine. On the Mac and Windows the "desktop app" is more than just a shortcut to the website. I did a test where I disconnected wifi, closed my default browser which I had set to clear cookies, offline data, active logins, cache, site preferences, browsing and download history. When I launched the application again, my default web browser opened and the document was still there and the webapp still functioned, so I think everything needed is stored locally somewhere.
