As 'working with a browser' continues to gain acceptance, an emerging strategy adopted by software companies is to provide a Web version of their applications previously developed in a desktop environment. This article introduces a desktop application service framework that enables a Web server to host desktop applications and supports accessing these applications through a browser. The authors present a case study to show how the framework helps a virtual desktop cloud reduce bandwidth consumption by supporting browser-based access.
