Details

It would be useful to be able to detect, via CSS, when the application is running under a remote desktop session - so that certain parts of the UI can be optimized for refreshes over the network. eg, use of solid backgrounds instead of the textured backgrounds we're using more of these days, which result in very slow remote screen refreshes.

Presumably this would have to be only for true remote login sessions (such as what RDP/Terminal Services does on Windows) - not screen sharing services (which would be hard to detect, and don't allow daring different things for local/remote clients). Given that RDP/Terminal Services is the only major remote desktop service that isn't screen sharing, I propose only that's supported.
