Google Confirms Remote Desktop App 'Chromoting' is in Development

A recent document on Chromium confirms that Google is currently developing a remote desktop app called "Chromoting." There are already remote desktop apps such as Splashtop, Screens and Ignition, but those cost $4.99, $19.99 and a whopping $129.99 respectively. Chromoting supposedly will be free.

The upper toolbar for iOS (containing just the back button, so it can barely be called a toolbar), is revealed by tapping on the compass in the lower toolbar. Our plan is to consolidate the upper and lower toolbars into one toolbar that will likely be located in the upper section of the screen."

We can at least expect some of the basic functionality offered by the others. Remote
