Run Linux inside the Web Browser

French hacker Fabrice Bellard has come up with a JavaScript pc Emulator that can run the 2.6.20 Linux kernel inside Mozilla’s Firefox 4 and Google chrome 11,these two provide significantly high JavaScript speeds as compared to others.He also adds that the emulator could also be used as a benchmark for Web Browsers.

Bellard is known for creating the FFmpeg open source multimedia project and the QEMU processor emulator – his JavaScript PC emulator is about two times slower on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine than on Firefox’s Jaeger Monkey engine, 32-bit version was tested on both browsers.
