I have a job using Citrix, so I must use Parallels to host Windows 7. From there I use IE8 to log onto Citrix, and then I work on the Windows desktop hosted on Citrix.  But I have timeout issues and it's a lot of work re-conecting.

Can I run this from Safari?  The tech support for this company does not support Safari.  But wold it work of I could get the settings right?

    Are you talking about safari on your Windows 7 OS? Then you can use it without any further modifications.

    However with safari on a Mac, as comnuts have mentioned you will require to have the Mac citrix online plugin version downloadable from the Citrix site.
