Over the last few weeks I’ve been working closely with Rachel Berry (Citrix) and Jason Southern (Nvidia) on some unexpected web browser behavior with web browsers on Nvidia grid enhanced VDI and RDS virtual machines running Citrix HDX 3D Pro.

Last month during Citrix Synergy Citrix announced updated Citrix receivers for a lot of devices. Most important is that all devices running Windows, Linux and Mac OSX Lion will get full HDX support in the near future.
