    I use the market from both my desktop browser and from my phone. Just depends on what is convenient at the moment.

    Its okay, a good concept but I usually find it quicker doing it straight from my device.

    I use the desktop version when I'm trying to reference an application on the forum. Otherwise, it's managing through the phone application.

    I use it quite often now that it's a lot more functional than it was a mere couple months ago.

    If I'm searching for a specific type of app, it's much faster and easier to search, locate, and decide, from the desktop. Find what I'm looking for, clicky install, and done.

    I also find it very handy and convenient when I read a review on an app that looks interesting and there's a market link in the review. Just click the link, select install, done. No need to grab the phone and go looking for the app.
