Ericom releases beta of HTML5 client for VMware View

Ericom, the company which provides VDI solutions has released a beta of its HTML5 client for VMware View. The HTML5 client will be able to access Vmware View desktops using the Remote Desktop Protocol(RDP) from any HTML5 compatible web browser.

The clients doesn’t require Java, Flash, Silverlight or any other underlying technology, which makes it quite unique. It leverages WebSockets, AJAX, JSON and HTML5 technologies. Unfortunately it doesn’t support the PCoIP protocol yet, but that can change in the near future, since Ericom is planning more future development based on feedback.
