In computing, TigerVNC, a VNC server and client, started as a fork of TightVNC in 2009.

Red Hat, Cendio AB and TurboVNC maintainers started this fork because RealVNC had focused on their enterprise non-open VNC and no TightVNC update had appeared since 2006. The past few years however, Cendio AB who use it for their product ThinLinc is the main contributor to the project. TigerVNC is fully open-source, with development and discussion done via publicly accessible mailing lists and repositories.

TigerVNC focuses on performance and on remote display functionality. It became the default VNC implementation in Fedora shortly after its creation.

A 2010 reviewer found the TigerVNC product "much faster than Vinagre, but not quite as responsive as Remmina".
