Chrome Can Now Control Another Desktop Remotely With New Extension

The Chrome remote desktop extension lets a person remotely control another computer over the network, in this case using Chrome on a Mac to control a Windows machine also running Chrome. (Credit: Google)

“Months of work on “chromoting” have reached fruition with Google’s release on Friday of a new Chrome extension to let a person on one computer remotely control another across the network.

The Chrome Remote Desktop beta version, which arrived Friday, is a browser-based equivalent of remote desktop software for conventional operating systems.

Such software is handy for IT administrators managing employees’ machines, people taking care of their relatives’ computers, or individuals getting access to their own machines from afar.”
