What is cloud and online CAD software?

Cloud and online CAD software run in a local browser or through a web or mobile app, unlike traditional CAD software installed on a local computer. They offer many of the same capabilities as traditional CAD software but are updated through a remote server and are acquired through a subscription, usually on a monthly or annual basis.
