Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2013-04-24 09:14:44 CEST
Currently, the HTML5 client uses quite a large portion of the screen for its own stuff. This means that the usable area for the remote desktop is smaller. Currently, there are two rows:

* One bar with buttons for controlling mouse, keyboard, clipboard etc. 
* One additional bar with status information, such as "Connected (encrypted) to astrand@bard.thinlinc.com". 

We could consider merging these into one, or remove them altogether. The status bar is not that useful. In our case, we are only allowing encrypted connections. 

Some other products, including the Ericom HTML5 client, uses a "floating" overlayed icon for the keyboard trigger. OTOH, it seems there's no support for controlling the mouse buttons. Having too many floating buttons might not work well.

Looks pretty good to me, tested from iPad and desktop browser.

One nice-to-have would be that clicking anywhere on the screen is enough to remove the overlay which pops up when clicking on the hostname in the status bar; currently you have to click on the overlay itself to get rid of it. But, good enough for me. Closing.
