The browser is second-class to the Client Connection Method . What it lacks it makes up for in convenience. You might find it necessary to use the browser if you are unable to install software.
There are a few issues that won't or can't be fixed due to technology limitations. This page lists some of what has been noted.
* Safari is known not to work, but has also been seen to work. It is an unknown at this point what to expect. Firefox and Chrome are known to work.
* Audio NEVER seems to work over the browser.
* The browser is limited to basic keystrokes. Some tools such as "alt-tab" do not always have the intended effect.
* Advanced features such as file sharing (drag & drop) and clipboard sharing do work, but reduced reliability.
