In a stunning announcement (ok, not so much), the the Chrome Remote Desktop Beta appeared on my Google+ timeline! Wow, what a nifty product worth exploring:

Chrome Remote Desktop BETA allows users to remotely access another computer through Chrome browser or a Chromebook. Computers can be made available on an short-term basis for scenarios such as ad hoc remote support, or on a more long-term basis for remote access to your applications and files. All connections are fully secured.
Chrome Remote Desktop BETA is fully cross-platform. Provide remote assistance to Windows, Mac and Linux users, or access your Windows (Vista and above) and Mac (OS X 10.6 and above) desktops at any time, all from the Chrome browser on virtually any device, including Chromebooks.

Pretty awesome feature! One question I have is, will it work through school district firewalls? Hmm….
I’ve seen several products that allow remote control, including some that require payment. I’m looking forward to seeing if this one will work easily and well.
