Options to access Shared Web Applications from Chrome Books or similar devices.

Last Modified: 2019-12-19
I have a few sites that are currently using RDS to share remote desktops so students can access a few legacy apps from “dumb” RDP terminals and/or Windows 10 computers in a lab setting.  I would like to covert these labs to chrome based os to solve some security and reduce hardware requirements.  The issue I have is when accessing a Share RDS Application the browser (Firefox or Chrome) requires the RDP client be installed.  Does anyone have any recommendations or RDS replacement (I know Citrix can) that would be inexpensive and easily managed?
