    Can you expand your use case? I don't get the 
phrase "running Linux in a browser". 
    I can get accessing a Linux system with a browser, 
but it seems to me a browser pretty much makes a 
connection to a web server on the remote host. 
    I suppose someone could make an app that turns 
the browser into a terminal window. 
    Seems possible, thouoh less likely, that someone 
would create a "desktop environment" as a 
web-accessible app (for example,your web browser 
takes on the appearance and functionality of a Gnome 
or KDE or...). 
    In both of the above cases, any actions you would 
kick off would act on the remote host. Seems poor 
(and possibly impossible) design to allow much to 
happen on your local machine.
