ESXi 6.0 - How do I find and download vSphere Web Client!?!?!

I am using the free version of ESXi 6.0 hypervisor and I have only one simple question.

When I am vSphere Client, (compared to previous version of ESXi) many features are greyed out and I
get a message saying I must use the Web Client.

However when I go to the internal site of the VMware install, and click the link to "download vSphere Web client"
it just brings me to the generic VMware downloads page.

I just want to download this easily and get it working again.

Thank you,
HappyT

Oh no.

Maybe I should install the older version of ESXi before the changes were made.

there has never been a free web client.

@kulboy - because you cannot use it for features later than virtual machine version 10!

and it does not give you access from a Web Browser!

VMware intends to kill off the vSphere Client (C#).

Because the regular client has many of the advanced features "greyed out" :(

Now I regret upgrading the free ESXi at the office to 6.0 awhile ago.

Is there any "easy" way to rollback to the last version installed on the server?

I can create a new question if you would like,
