Citrix Workspace app for HTML5

Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 is hosted on StoreFront servers and enables users to access virtual desktops and hosted applications from a web browser. Resources delivered by Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops are aggregated in a StoreFront store and made available through a Citrix Workspace for Web site. With Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 enabled on the site, users can access desktops and applications within their web browsers without needing to install Citrix Workspace locally on their devices.

When used in conjunction with the centralized customization and branding capabilities of StoreFront 3.0 and later, users of this Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 release will receive a centrally managed app and desktop selection experience from StoreFront.
