    Terminal Services Web-Access (aka Remote Desktop Web Connection) uses an ActiveX control and only works in IE, and there isn't much point in that since if you have IE then you're going to have mstsc.exe installed too.


    VNC is better in this regard because there are loads of Java applet clients for that which are inherently more cross-platform than ActiveX.

    Except for the fact that VNC is a more fractured set of features/capabilities spread between countless different implementations and extensions.


    While at first glance RDP is officially tied to ActiveX or mstsc... there are plenty of other implementations out there as well for various different OSes & devices.
