Remote Desktop Tool

Comment by deanjones
about Screen Sharing Feb 2013

Hey. I have tried using TeamViewer remote desktop tool and it is really great. Thank you very much for such wonderful information. In addition to team viewer, I have even tried various other remote support services such as logmeinrescue, gosupportnow, GoToMyPC etc. and they are good too.

More useful than Chicken of the VNC

Positive Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Screen Sharing and Chicken of the VNC Dec 2011

Before discovering that OS X actually had a VNC client built-in, I used Chicken of the VNC because it was the only free app that I could find. Chicken of the VNC wasn't bad, but there wasn't anything particularly special about it (at least for casual users). In comparison, Screen Sharing adds a couple of pretty useful features: view-only mode, screen scaling, and full-screen mode come to mind.
