About the Company (from their website):

Leveraging ZeroDesktop’s deep roots in providing advanced private and public cloud computing solutions, ZeroPC empowers users with their own virtual desktop that is available anywhere, from any device, at any time.
Consumer Computer Evolution
The proliferation of Internet connected devices and non-centralized Web apps and services have paved the way for a myriad of new opportunities as well as often frustrating challenges. Consumers are finding all of their digital content and applications scattered across-multiple devices and websites – PCs, laptops, netbooks, tablets, cell phones, social media sites, etc. – with varying user interfaces, privacy and security protocols, and multiple logins to remember. This increasing volume of documents, photos, videos and other content has become very difficult to keep track of, manage and access. The “consumer computer evolution” has facilitated the need for ZeroPC’s solution as a lifetime unified Web Desktop to securely and easily Create, Connect and Share anything online.

ZeroPC doesn’t require learning any additional programs because it utilizes familiar “drag & drop” processes and user interfaces to a Windows-like environment. The ZeroPC platform is integrated with a universal email checker to access of the user’s emails from a single place, a built-in messenger that supports most popular messaging services, access to full feature, high-quality Microsoft-compatible productivity tools similar to Word, PowerPoint and Excel with collaboration and sharing features.
