• Makes any Linux/X11 application remotely accessible.
  • Open desktop applications in your web browser!
  • Windows can be moved and positioned arbitrarily and independent of the real application running on the server.
  • Runs stand-alone too. It feels as if you're running a locally installed application. Check this (old) demo video.
  • Collaboration! Users can concurrently access the same application.
