One can argue whether such a distinction really has any merit. Users
don't necessarily know or care what category of application they're
using. They just want it to work the way it should work.

However, in this situation, there is no distinction at all. Both
thick- and thin-clients have identical default behaviors: tab to move
through fields, and Enter to submit. So a comparison on this point is
not limited by application type.
