I am currently using NoMachine's NX Web Companion free product using java as well as FreeNX and an RDP for Windows to access a Gnome GUI Ubuntu 12.04 instance running on Amazon Web Services Free Tier ec2.

What I have works pretty well but I really would like to find a better method for Browser Access for accessing my Precise Pangolin Virtual Desktop from machines I have no admin rights on.

Anyone have any ideas or know of software or configurations that might provide cleaner and faster secure access to my desktop from as many devices as possible?

If anyone is interested in how to deploy the browser enabled solution I have working, I would be happy to share. I am hoping for a better method, but the NX Web companion works pretty well. With it you can run it free using Amazon's Free Tier as a micro instance.
