ajaxterm is a terminal that works in a web browser

is there a similar solution for x windows?

if i'm in a library or on a netbook i can't use vnc, but every computer has a browser. so is there a way to run X in a browser?

WeirdX might run as a browser applet. Most Unix VNC servers also have built-in mini web browsers that serve up Java VNC applets; or there's a standalone package downloadable here.

wow, amazing. I actually didn't expect a solution. – kirill_igum Mar 10 '11 at 21:05
I vaguely recall SCO's Skunkworks (I think) releasing a proof-of-concept browser applet for this, but this is all I could find on a quick search. – geekosaur Mar 10 '11 at 21:16

looks like gtk3.2 will allow it with html5

An X server is much more complex than a terminal emulator. That's not to say that it couldn't be done, but it's far more work than "point browser at existing X server".
