    It's the best open source alternative. It doesn't require port forwarding on client side. Just send the client the file and they press connect. That's it.

    There's web account or any way to sync computers which makes it worthless.

    Supports all features of TeamViewer, but with fair license prices and more technical options. i.e. it allows to run your own relay server ("RU Server") in the public internet to connect your "Viewer" with remote PCs (running unattended "Host" or on-demand "Agent") when they are both behind a firewall. (TV always uses its own cloud infrastructure for that purpose)

    Straightforward, effective and lightweight, with less mucking about with usernames and things than Teamviewer. Just what I wanted. If I'm running fullscreen (F12 toggles it) then I feel like I'm just working away on my remote PC. I use it to work from my office laptop using my home desktop setup.
