Speak for yourself..
The user gets no benefit at all from web-based installers: they are all for the company releasing the crappy-made software. It's as simple as that.

There is at least 1 problem with your analagy: The customer may not have internet or has a fresh os install, which should be updated while offline to prevent infection. When i set new systems up, i get the updates beforehand and update. With web installers, i must risk possible infection.
1. So the user always installs the latest version
2. So the company can collect information during the install
I like online installers because I'm terrible at managing files and I don't want to keep a bunch of installers on my computer, that I'm probably going to forget to backup whenever I format anyway.
