Chrome Remote Desktop allows users to remotely access another computer through the Chrome browser or a Chromebook. This version enables users to share with or get access to another computer by providing a one-time authentication code. Access is given only to the specific person the user identifies for one time only, and the sharing session is fully secured. One potential use of this version is the remote IT helpdesk case. The helpdesk can use it to help another user, while conversely a user can receive help by setting up a sharing session without leaving their desk. Additional use cases such as being able to access your own computer remotely are coming soon.

    Reviewing 1.2.20109.8300 Beta (Oct 11, 2011)

    Works surprisingly smooth and stable for a beta release (not like there are any final version of Google programs).

    It is a Chrome extension by the way, and requires you to login to gmail. Once you;re in, a unique code is generated and can be used used by the other party to access your session from the Chrome browser as well.

    I have test it over a slow WiFi connection, with Win 7 Aero and it worked quite good. Unfortunately, it does not have any options at all so you cannot tune it in any way like, for instance, if you want to reduce some visual effects to cope with your bandwidth. By default it grants the full desktop control to the invited party as there is no view only mode.

    Plain and simple for your parents to use when require your (expert) assistance ;)

    P.S. I guess this is the worst nightmare for google spyware paranoia. Login to Google and share your desktop ... oh, the horror!
