How frequent is the data entry? If the users are entering a lot of documents and need to do a lot of review, the Notes interface would be my choice, all other factors being equal. If the need is for only occasional entries, the browser interface is probably the best. Also, consider the licensing involved. How does your company license the use of Notes/Domino? If it is per CPU, then it doesn't make a difference if your users authenticate via a browser or Notes client.
See here for a summary of Domino licensing. Since my environment has Notes clients on all desktops, we would probably go with the client based solution, but you need weigh all the issues to make an informed decision
