    Same uncomplicated and simply working remote desktop application as one day was TeamViewer. And at best: Newer versions can connect to older versions - which TeamViewer always enforced to enforce everybody to upgrade.

    The fact it seems to be running a native Linux binary is excellent, but it also runs in Fedora 25 (which Chrome Remote Desktop still doesn't support) and runs really well.

    No longer free, 14-day trial, nag screens, and a timer. The licence is still cheaper than TeamViewer though.

    This is the best alternative to TeamViewer for those on a budget. Does pretty much everything TeamViewer can, with the exception of needing to open ports in your firewall. Since you can specify ports, it's not as vulnerable as one would think, simply use non standard ports and a very strong password.

    Sounds great at first glance. But as always, there is a catch. Yes, the software is open source, but limited in bandwidth, if you want more speed you have to subscribe. And that can cost up to 100 € for 50 Mbps maximum bandwidth per month, 1200,- € or 1346,49 $ per year. Then better use a professional solution like Teamviewer or Anydesk.

    TightVNC requires server configuration and port forwarding. Too complicated for the average remote client who uses Team Viewer for remote support.

    UltraViewer supports all Windows versions since XP with its latest update. TeamViewer requires you to purchase a license before you can support older versions of Windows, and then you have to download an older version of TeamViewer, not the latest. Also, if you want the paid version of UltraViewer, it costs a lot less than TeamViewer.

    Really awesome for Linux users to remotely connect to their computers through a secure connection. Allows for transmission of audio from the client, and works really well even with slow connections. To summarize: secure by default (because using ssh), good even in low latency, good for presentations, and best alternative to RDP for linux users.
