Important Request:
(1) Read full article.
(2) Nothing magic happening. Article let you know about advantage of using of desktop in cloud.
(3) MBPS / GBPS are written in capital letters for shake of easiness. Please refer screenshots in article also disclaimer at end. Everyone knows difference between Mbps and MBPS.
(4) If you don't know anything thing about VDI or Remote desktop, you will feel something like " Free Electricity".
(5) If you find title a clickbait. You are most welcome to close this article and browse some other.

I've got 'GigaFiber' as an internet plan at home. My plan gives me about 1000 GB per month at a speed of 1GBPS, which is then reduced to less than 1 MBPS. I've hardly been able to exhaust 1000GBs.

A week ago , I decided to exhaust all these data and see exactly how the devices run at a speed of less than 1 MBPS.

my home speed

All of the devices are very slow ... Hardly capable of surfing the internet at this speed.

I've been experimenting to bring the full Gnome desktop environment to my remote desktop. Gnome is very resource-intensive, so Xfce is recommended as the first and last choice for every remote desktop.

However, I considered it a challenge made some changes to Gnome Desktop to make it behave as lighter than Xfce as a remote desktop.

Yes to my surprise, the remote desktop (gnome) is acting faster than its counterpart Xfce. Also, I was able to bring a full gnome desktop inside the browser tab.

700Kbps Home Desktop Speed is enough to render the UI of my remote desktop in the browser. Since my remote desktop has a speed of 200 MBPS, I can surf the net at a speed of 200 MBPS even at a speed of fewer than 1 MBPS.

Update: please note:
(1) Here speeds are notionally written in capital letters MBPS / GBPS for shake of easiness. Be bit practical.
(2) I am surfing my remote desktop in browser. My desktop speed is less but my remote desktop is having very good speed.
(3) This is custom built remote desktop. This is why I am able to have gnome desktop as remote desktop .

There is nothing like free electricity but yes you can have better speed and resources of remote machine.
As mentioned in the article:
(2) I am surfing my remote desktop in browser. My desktop speed is less but my remote desktop is having very good speed.

Exactly what is happening:
My remote machine is having 32 GB Ram, 8 cores and 1 TB Drive. Also, remote machine on cloud having 200 Mbps port speed.
I am rendering the UI of this machine through web browser RDP.
My local machine having some ~ 700 kbs which is enough to bring UI of my remote machine. This is all the game 😂

 
 

It's a custom made solution. Lots of changes .

 

What changes did you made? Any repo available? I am facing the face challenge my home internet is very slow and I am using under powered laptop.

We are launching it as a new project. Will surely give some people to try 😉

 

Browse websites over remote desktop and get faster response? If it's not magic, what is it? Show some proff like page load times.

 

Hey bro, thanks for feedback. The desktop environment mentioned in the article is under development. However, I will require some beta testers. I will flashing the requirement soon in New article.

Meanwhile, on some issues you may try this by self :
