I came across this tip from a fellow colleague today and wanted to share it with everyone. You can run Zimbra Desktop in your default web browser. My default web browser is Chrome and I have found running Zimbra Desktop in Chrome to be very responsive.
First step is to open the native Zimbra Desktop Client and then click Setup in the upper right corner.
This will open the setup screen for the Zimbra Desktop Client. Located in the bottom right you will see an option for open in web browser; click this link.
This will open Zimbra Desktop in your default web browser, once it opens click Launch Desktop.
And there you go, the Zimbra Desktop Client running in a web browser, in this case Chrome.
A couple notes:
The native Zimbra Desktop Client must remain open, so I just minimize the native Zimbra Desktop Client.
You have to “launch in a web browser” each time you close your web browser or the native Zimbra Desktop Client.
