App Switching Made Easy with Citrix Receiver for HTML5

Citrix App Switching 

Receiver for HTML5 is a clientless Receiver that runs inside a browser. Applications running on one XenApp server open in the same browser tab on the endpoint. To easily switch between the applications in a browser tab, you just need to use the app switcher.

The App Switcher for the client side is introduced in HTML5 receiver 2.0. Till now, it had to be installed on the VDA using a separate package that installed the app switcher exe file. The installed VDA app switcher uses a processor-intensive enumeration to identify the list of running applications in the session.

HTML5 receiver 2.0 bundles this feature within the HTML5 receiver. The app switcher doesn't need to be installed as a separate executable on the VDA. The new app switcher is completely implemented on the client side, which reduces the load on the VDA. Previously installed VDA app switchers should be removed to leverage the new client side app switcher.

Client side app switcher runs in two modes:

  1. Taskbar mode
  2. Grid-view mode
