If you’re running the latest version of Firefox or Google’s Chrome browser, you can now run a light-weight Linux right there on your browser.  Who said that JavaScript was a weak language?

If you’d like to try it out, point Firefox 4 or Chrome 11 to the demo page. Keep in mind that this is just Linux, no X Window or other graphical interface, just the command line, a small C compiler and QEmacs, Bellard’s emacs clone. Still, it’s really Linux, really running in your web browser, really using JavaScript to emulate hardware.

For more info on how Bellard did it, as well as what the hardware emulator supports, see Bellard’s technical notes.
