Early 2010, we blogged about three tools that help you remotely control your desktop. There are several more tools and a new kid to hit the block is from our very only Google in the form of the Chrome Remote Desktop. Google Chrome Desktop is an extension for Google Chrome that allows users to remotely access another computer using the Chrome browser or a Chromebook.
