The web plug-in is a smaller, more limited plug-in that is installed with the CitrixOnlinePluginWeb.exe installer file. Administrative rights are not required to install this package, enabling installation by standard users.
If you want users to access published resources and virtual desktops from within a familiar browser environment, use the web plug-in. Users access published resources and desktops by clicking links on a Web page you publish on your corporate intranet or the Internet.
The published resource or desktop launches either in the same window or in a new, separate browser window. The web plug-in does not require user configuration and does not have a user interface.
You can use this plug-in to access resources and desktops available from the Web Interface and for access to resources published with traditional Application Launching and Embedding (ALE). Publish links to your resources with the Web Interface or by using an HTML wizard.
This plug-in requires the presence on user devices of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0, 7.0, or 8.0; or Mozilla Firefox 1.0 and later.
