One other comment: VNC is stateless on the client side (it just grabs the display buffer and sends it over the network). So if you get disconnected, just reconnect and you're right where you left off. Or disconnect and reconnect from home, and everything's right where you left it.

I didn't test to see if this is true for them (if the entire thing is rendered in Javascript on the client I would expect that at least you'd lose the last changes you made after you lost the connection), but it's obviously a significant advantage for the user.

In VNC, when the net connection goes, so does the VNC window (BANG!). So you really can't type in the window after the connection is lost.
