Google We don't get too many details when it comes to Google's Chrome OS, but this tiny little tidbit dug up by The Register is certainly quite interesting. It looks as if Google is working on implementing remote desktop-like functionality into Chrome OS so you can directly control applications running on other computers within the browser.

What's with the stupid names?

Stop making up stupid names for existing things.

Remote desktop access is nothing new, so it doesn't need a new name.

And it's not rocket science to make this happen. The NX Client has a java version that runs in the browser. We use this all the time for staff/students that have issues installing the full NX Client on their Windows/Mac/Linux computer.

There are java versions of rdesktop and VNC as well.

There's nothing new here. So it doesn't need a new name.
