noVNC - HTML5 and Javascript VNC Client

What if you could remotely control your computer via VNC, using nothing but your browser, without relying on any external plugin or component, like Flash or Java?

Thats' exactly what you can do with this noVNC, a VNC client that uses nothing but HTML5 technology (like Canvas and WebSockets), and javascript.

For now, you'll have to use a TCP to Websockets proxy, as none of the current mainstream VNC servers support WebSockets connections, but I guess that will change soon, as the interest in HTML5 grows every day.

Soon... you'll be able to connect to your desktop by simply using a modern browser - and without having to install anything else (many VNC servers allowed web access, but using Java.)
