The operating system of your local computer determines the options that you have to connect from your local computer to your Linux instance.

The Amazon EC2 console provides an option to connect to your instances directly from your browser using a Java SSH client. However, it is no longer supported on many browsers. For more information, see Cannot Connect Using My Browser.
