Some say a web app is three-tier even if connecting a database directly from
as the client browser will be the third tier. So the three-tier system is browser-web container-database.

Welcome to CodeRanch!
A web app is considered three tiers. A good way to remember this is to contrast it with a two tier client/server system. In the two tier model, the client is "thick" and contains business logic.
