Or launch client program via MIME bindings both for Vnc and Spice.
Not as neat as "noVnc" but will work in most scenarios, without having
to maintain the actual console implementation.
I would think there are many people
out there who are not able to use current spice client, or not willing to(hate switching
from chrome to firefox:-)
Sure they can set up things manually but it would be way more convenient to allow a simple
external launch of their VNC client of choice
