About Citrix Receiver for HTML5 2.2

Nov 01, 2017

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

When used in conjunction with the centralized customization and branding capabilities of the StoreFront 3.0 (and later), users of this Citrix Receiver for HTML5 release will receive a centrally managed app and desktop selection experience from StoreFront. This is the same consistent user experience that can be received by the Windows and Mac desktop Citrix Receivers and Chrome web Citrix Receiver when associated with the StoreFront.
