HttpVPN is not for reaching your desktop from outside, so in this sense - no, it's not. But HttpVPN is for working around networking complexities and reaching your web apps living inside local networks, which is an idea behind many kinds of remote access tools. You may say "But using VPN, I can reach my inside-the-LAN web apps.", which is true, but HttpVPN does not require any VPN client to be installed, so every PC or cell phone with a web browser is your client. HttpVPN also provides very easy and consistent way to provision access to your app for other people.

HttpVPN is ideal for situations when relatively small number: dozens, may be hundreds, of external users need to access a web applications, but the organization either does not have IT staff to set up full-blown web hosting DMZ, and datacenter hosting is too inconvenient due to necessity of having data store moved off site. Think of a doctor's office that may want to provide their patients secure access to a web application running inside the office, where all patient's data is. Or if you are a software development company and you want to give your clients access to your testing environment so customers could see the progress of how your web-based software project is coming along. Or when you're at a supermarket and you want to have a shopping list application on your phone, while your loved ones are busy filling stuff in from their computers elsewhere - hosting such application at a datacenter, or reaching it through the VPN, is hardly practical.

HttpVPN is best for secure on-the-premises hosting by non-IT operators of web apps serving moderate number of users. And it is redistributable and easily to integrate into web app installation packages.
