It's generally the case, but nothing prevents you to do the same event
driven interface in web applications.
Sure it works better on fast networks but it works well enough even with a
modem connection.
Using an event driven architecture has nice side effects like real time
values validation (not only after the sumbit), view coherence, automatic
updating of the views, etc.

I use a lot of closures in my framework but no continuations (it's in Common
