Morphic in Javascript

There is a project at Sun for porting the Self/Squeak morphic GUI to Javascript and browser (it mostly works with FireFox ) :
http://research.sun.com/projects/lively/index.html

It shows some kind of Smalltalk OS inside a browser.

It is currently insanely slow but one can hope some enhancements with the future ECMAScript 4 which is more JIT-compilation friendly.
