California based Xform Computing has announced VirtualChrome 1.2 for iPad. Using the power of cloud computing, VirtualChrome lets users run the real desktop-class Chrome browser via an ultra-secure virtual system, liberating consumer and business iPad users to run almost any website or Java application. Thousands of commercial and enterprise Java applications can be instantly deployed on iPad using VirtualChrome. All connections are RSA encrypted for maximum security.
“Anyone who has used an iPad knows its limitations,” saidys Kroum Antov, CEO of Xform Computing, “which include lack of support for Adobe Flash, Java applications, Chrome Extensions, and the Chrome Web Store. VirtualChrome delivers these key capabilities on iPad today.”
Flash on iPad is now possible using VirtualChrome App: users can play Flash games like FarmVille2 or Zynga Poker inside Facebook with existing points and status, ClubPenguin, Webkinz, Entanglement, and thousands more. The app also supports Flash productivity sites like Sliderocket presentation editing and Adobe online services such as Acrobat CreatePDF.
VirtualChrome also supports Java on iPad including Applets, JNLP and JAR files. Java is at the heart of many interactive websites and applications, but does not work natively on iOS. With VirtualChrome users can play Runescape on iPad, PartyPoker, GameTableOnline and more.
Thousands of commercial and enterprise Java applications can be instantly deployed on iPad using VirtualChrome. Examples include: Scottrade Pro and similar Java-based stock trade applications; United Airlines Unimatic scheduling program; Zoho Meeting feature to host a Web Conference screen share on iPad.
Chrome Extensions are another capability of VirtualChrome, allowing browser-integrated features like Evernote Web Clipper on iPad, Adblock, Stylish themes. These Extensions as well as Web Apps can be browsed and installed from the Chrome Web Store.
Since it runs virtually, VirtualChrome is also one of the most secure browsers available: No web content, text or data is ever passed to or cached on the iPad. All connections are RSA encrypted for maximum security.
