Citrix Receiver for HTML 5 is here!

The day is finally here… I first heard about this 2 years ago while attending Citrix Synergy 2010 in San Francisco.

As you know, Java was the only clientless option which many of us simply shut off in Web Interface.  I remember the days when this was the only option to use with Macs 😦 as the Mac client did not exist yet.

Receiver for HTML5 is a zero install client allowing connection through a browser to XenApp and XenDesktop. The combination of the Receiver for Web and HTML5 provides a fallback option for environments where a native client is not available or an option.

Key new features include:

  • Google Chrome (version 19+) & Mozilla Firefox (version 11+) browsers on Windows and Mac desktops
  • In-session Tool bar that can move and close
    • Copy/Paste text
    • Key to send Ctrl+Alt+Del to desktop session
  • External access of XenApp applications and XenDesktop via Access Gateway
  • Direct internal access of XenApp applications
  • Performance enhancements

You can download the new client from the link below:
