RealVNC and Google are working together to integrate the widely used VNC remote screen protocol into Google's Chrome products, including the Chrome browser and Chrome OS platform for netbooks.
Details are still a little vague, but RealVNC told V3.co.uk that the collaboration will result in remote access services being built into the Chrome browser and the Chrome operating system.
The purpose is to enable Chrome users to remotely access existing applications on other computers, such as Windows PCs, as well as Google's cloud-based applications such as Google Docs and Google Mail.
"The collaboration helps fill a gap, as Google cannot itself replace every application that users may need and is part of the strategy to make the Chrome platform a more complete offering," a RealVNC spokesman said.
RealVNC was founded by the original developers of VNC, which is a platform-independent protocol for remotely viewing the screen of a remote computer and taking control of it.
Google unveiled a public beta of Chrome OS in December, along with the Cr-48 testbed laptop. The first commercial products using the platform are due to be released in the middle of this year.
