Browser-based remote desktop sessions – 100% hassle-free
The program that I use to share my desktop with other people is called Mikogo and it’s a total game-changer.

It’s definitely one of the most hassle-free remote desktop software tools that I know. Since it’s all browser-based, it will work with Linux, Mac, Windows.
