I assume Project Director has features Mindjet Web does not have but I can't spot the difference on these web pages.  Except that you cannot buy Mindjet for Web because it is a part of other products eg. MindManager Plus and Mindjet subscription.

Good question.
Even for us (Mindjet reseller) it's not always clear what Mindjet means with this - and it changes everytime. But I will try to explain:

Project Director is an extra feature to the Mindjet Web account (it's a tab Project next to Tasks and Library):

Project Director has a wizard which helps you to create a projectenvironment including invitations to projectmembers. It is only available in the browser, so not in the desktop applications. The projectfolder you have created in Project Director is not visible in Mindjet Files in the desktop.

In Project Director you also see the Mindjet Tasks of the project.

Mindjet Web is the non-desktop part of Mindjet, with Mindjet Files as the central storage. So when you want to use Mindjet in a browser or in an app, you need a web account. For individual users, Mindjet offers a Mindjet PLUS subscription in addition to their desktop license. You can only invite "guests" to your account.

Now comes the part where I am lost: there is a  business account in which you can have members (you pay per member, or "seat"). Members have more permissions than guests.
I think that this business account is the same as Project Director, or....

Perhaps Mindjet can explain this to us!

Mindjet Web is the old name for ProjectDirector.  Where did you find the link for Mindjet Web?

Mindjet for Business is bundle where you get a ProjectDirector account and a license for MindManager.

On the MindManager Plus page "It’s also the only way to get “take-it-anywhere" web access for your files and maps. "  Although its not called Mindjet Web, a MindManager Plus subscriber does not get full Project Director functionality in my understanding.

A Venn diagram would be useful.
