Now it is more convenient to carry your smartphone or a tablet with you instead of your notebook while you are on the go. However, from time to time you might need to edit a file or do some task on your remote desktop or notebook. That’s where VNC Viewer comes in. It lets you connect to a remote desktop from your Chrome browser window and take control of the computer. You can run applications, change settings, access your files and use the keyboard and mouse exactly as if you were sitting in front of that computer. VNC Viewer can connect to any Windows, Mac OS X, Linux or Unix computer running VNC-compatible server software.
To try it out, download the extension to your Chrome browser. Next, install the VNC server software on the computer you want to access from your browser (available on their website). If you are connecting over the Internet, configure the firewall and router settings to allow a connection to the remote computer.
If you are connecting over a Wi-Fi-enabled private network such as a LAN or a VPN, you should be able to connect without further configuration. Next, start VNC Viewer in your browser and connect to the remote computer by its network address.
The extension is free to use. However, if you get one of their paid licenses (personal or enterprise), you will enjoy additional features like 128/256-bit encryption, optimized performance, file transfer, dedicated support and others.
